Silene vulgaris is a wild edible plant consumed in both raw as well as cooked forms in several parts of Europe. The phytoconstituents of Silene species include phytoecdysteroids, triterpenoidal saponins, terpenoids, flavonoids and phenolics. Silene vulgaris is a relatively unexplored species and the chemical profiling of this plant has not been attempted so far. Hence the UPLC-ESI-MS approach was applied to the extracts of flowers, leaves and roots of S. vulgaris for the profiling of…

Diversity of Secondary Metabolites in the Genus Silene L. (Caryophyllaceae)—Structures, Distribution, and Biological Properties

The genus Silene comprises more than 700 species, which are widely distributed in temperate zones of the Northern Hemisphere, but are also present in Africa and have been introduced in other continents.

The experimental approach included the measurement of ecdysteroid levels in different plant organs and an evaluation of the contribution of individual organs to the total amount of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) produced by the plant.

E- and Z-Isomers of New Phytoecdysteroid Conjugates from French Polynesian Microsorum membranifolium (Polypodiaceae) Fronds

The new structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic data analysis (1D, 2D-NMR and HR-MS techniques) and were observed and identified for the first time.

Nutrient and fatty acid composition of wild edible bladder campion populations [Silene vulgaris (Moench.) Garcke]

This work attempts to contribute to the knowledge of the nutritional properties of wild edible Spanish bladder campion, which have not been, as far as the authors know, documented to date.

Factors affecting secondary metabolite production in plants: volatile components and essential oils

The presence, yield and composition of secondary metabolites in plants, viz. the volatile components and those occurring in essential oils, can be affected in a number of ways, from their formation

Isolation of a new class of ecdysteroid conjugates (glucosyl-ferulates) using a combination of liquid chromatographic methods.

The data highlight the importance of selectivity in the choice of HPLC methods used for ecdysteroid separations and elute as non-polar Ecdysteroids on reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC), whereas their behavior on normal-phase (NP) HPLC is strongly dependent on the mobile phase composition.
