Phenolic glycosides from Dirca palustris.


Five novel phenolic glycosides (1-5) were isolated from the MeOH extract of the dried twigs of Dirca palustris, as confirmed by their (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, and MS data. Compounds 1-3 were not active against cyclooxygenase I (COX-I), but compound 4 (200 microg/mL) and compound 5 (125 microg/mL) showed 12.5 and 9.2% inhibition of the COX-I enzyme, respectively… (More)
