Oleuropeic Acid: a New Compound from Olea europæa


WE have recently announced1 the isolation of oleuropein from Olea europæa which proved to be a double ester of glucose with protocatechuic acid and a second, as yet undescribed, non-aromatic acid. We have now succeeded in elucidating the structure of this compound—oleuropeic acid. It could be isolated by alkaline hydrolysis of oleuropein with subsequent… (More)
