The structure of euparone, a new benzofuran from Ruscus aculeatus, as 2,5-diacetyl-6-hydroxybenzofuran was determined by spectral means and conversion to euparone methyl ether (O-methyleuparone). 
Ruscodibenzoruran, a new dibenzofuran from Ruscus aculeatus l. (liliaceae)
The structure of ruscodibenzofuran, a new naturally occurring dibenzofuran from the roots of Ruscus aculeatus L. (Farn. Liliaceae), was determined by spectral means, the synthesis of model compoundsExpand
Thiophene, Furans, and Related Aromatic Compounds from Eupatorium heterophyllum

Chemical composition and antioxidant activity of the essential oil of aerial parts of Petasites albus from Iran: a good natural source of euparin
The antioxidant activities of the essential oil and euparin were evaluated by using the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging assay and are shown to exhibit a moderate antioxidant activity. Expand
Spirostanol saponins and esculin from Rusci rhizoma reduce the thrombin-induced hyperpermeability of endothelial cells.
In vitro data provide insight into the pharmacological mechanism by which the genuine spirostanol saponins and esculin can contribute to the efficacy of Butcher's broom against chronic venous disorders. Expand
