Recently, several compounds including polyunsaturated fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic, arachidonic), the triflavonoid selligueain and a sulfonoglycolipid (SQDG) have been isolated from the South American fern, Polypodium decumanum using bioactivity directed fractionation. The present study describes the quantitative analysis using HPLC methods of these three classes of compounds in the leaves and rhizomes of the five Polypodium species. Furthermore, extracts of the five ferns are studied in… CONTINUE READING
