Two new flavanones with a C15 isoprenoid group, japonicasins A and B (1 and 2), were isolated from the leaves of Sophora japonica. This is the first report on the presence of the (2E,7E)-6-isopropyl-3,9-dimethyldeca-2,7,9-trien-1-yl group (C15 isoprenoid group) in isoprenylated flavonoids. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods, including(More)
Angelica sinensis(Umbelliferae)is a worldwide-known medicinal plant and also a famous traditional Chinese medicinal herb. It is recorded to possess the efficacy of enriching the blood and invigorating the circulation of blood of the individual.Danggui was extensively applied to the treatment of gynecological disorders. Modern researches indicate that(More)
A new flavone glycoside, eupatilin 7-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (1) and a new flavone, 5,6,2',4'-tetrahydroxy-7,5'-dimethoxyflavone (2), were isolated from Artemisia argyi. Their structures were unambiguously elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis. Both flavonoids were evaluated for in vitro anticoagulation activities. Compound 1 significantly extended(More)
Two new phthalide derivatives, angesinenolides A and B (1 and 2), were isolated from the roots of Angelica sinensis. Their structures were elucidated using HRMS, NMR, and X-ray crystallographic data. Compound 1 is the first example of a phthalide trimer presumably formed through two [2+2] cycloaddition reactions. Compound 2 is a unique dimeric phthalide(More)
Phytochemical investigation on the leaves of Artemisia argyi has led to the isolation and identication of a new caffeic acid ester, heptatriacontanyl caffeate (1), along with two known caffeic acid esters, including docosyl caffeate (2) and octadecyl caffeate (3). Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods (IR, NMR, and MS). The two known(More)
