Abstract A new unique isoflavone derivatives with a cyclic-monoterpene-substituent, ficusin C (1), together with five known compounds (2–6), were isolated from the rhizomes of Ficus tikoua. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data interpretation, mass spectrometric analysis and comparison with literature data of related compounds. Antioxidant and α-glucosidase inhibitory activities of these compounds were evaluated by 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryhydrazyl (DPPH) radical…

Synthesis Of Alkoxy-Isoflavones As Potential α-Glucosidase Inhibitors

The aromatic moieties of the series of compounds 3 and 4 enhance the inhibitory activity by hydrophobic effects according to docking calculations, suggesting that the attachment of a 4’-chloroacetophenone moiety to the 7-hydroxyl group of 2a-c is an efficient way to increase the inhibition of a-glucosidase.
