Alkylresorcinol derivatives and sesquiterpene lactones from Cichorium spinosum.

Abstract

One new alkylresorcinol derivative, cichoriol B, and a mixture of three other ones, cichoriols A, C, and D, were isolated from the dichloromethane extract of Cichorium spinosum, a plant that is used traditionally in the Cretan diet. The methanol extract afforded one new sesquiterpene lactone, (4R)-3,4-dihydrolactucopicrin. The structures of the new… (More)
