Plant antiviral agents, VI. Isolation of antiviral phenolic glucosides from Populus cultivar Beaupre by droplet counter-current chromatography.

Bioassay-guided isolation of the 80% EtOH extract of the leaves of Populus cultivar Beaupré by means of dccc afforded four known phenolic glucosides. Salicin and salireposide were shown to be, at least partially, responsible for the antiviral activity of the extract against poliomyelitis and Semliki forest viruses.
