Preparative isolation of a novel flavonoid from an infusion of Byrsonima basiloba leaves by high-speed counter-current chromatography
MetadataShow full item record
A method for the isolation of three compounds from the infusion of leaves of Byrsonima basiloba A. Juss. by high-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) was developed. This technique led to the separation of a novel compound, quercetin 3-O-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1 -> 3)-O-[alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1 -> 6)]-beta-D-allopyranoside, and two known compounds quercetin3-O-(X-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1 -> 6)-beta-D-galactopyranoside and (+)-catechin in 4 h with purities of over 92%. The structures of the compounds were determined by one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy and HPLC.
