4-Demethyl simmondsin from Simmondsia chinensis


Jojoba seed meal (Simmondsia chinensis) contains approximately 15% glucosides identified as simmondsin, 5-demethyl simmondsin, didemethyl simmondsin, along with simmondsin 2%-ferulate, 4-demethyl simmondsin 2%-ferulate, and 5-demethyl simmondsin ferulate. The new simmondsin derivative was isolated from jojoba meal by a combination of column chromatography and preparative HPLC and identified by 2D-NMR and L-SIMS as 2-(cyanomethylene)-3,4-dihydroxy-5-methoxycyclohexyl b-D-glucoside or 4-demethyl simmmondsin. © 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
