Ginkgolides and bilobalide: their physical, chromatographic and spectroscopic properties.

Abstract

Ginkgolides A, B, C, J, K, L and M and bilobalide are rare terpene trilactones that have been isolated from leaves and root bark of the Chinese tree Ginkgo biloba. The structures of the highly oxidized ginkgolides were independently elucidated in the 1960s by the groups of Nakanishi and Sakabe. Later these compounds were found to be potent and selective… (More)
