Chemical Constituents of Adesmia boronioides and evaluation of their antioxidant activity

Orlando Muñoz and Carla Delporte

Keywords: flavonoids, Adesmiaboronioides, flavonoid glycosides, isodrimenin, sesamin.


As part of our ongoing research into the pharmacologically active compounds of Chilean flora, here we did phytochemical investigation of Adesmia boronioides Hook.f (fabaceae). (Papilonaceae) leaves. This effort has led to isolation and identification of liqueritigenin, isoliquiritigenin, sesamin, isodrimenin and a kaempferol glycoside, kaempferol 3-O-β-D-[galactopyranosyl (1–2) rhamnoside]-7-O –α-L-rhamnopyranoside.Compound structures were identified by 1D- and 2D-NMR experiments, mass and UV spectrometry and comparison with data from the literature. This is the first time these compounds have been isolated from this plant’s leaves.These active constituents have been studied further pharmacologically. Antioxidant properties in A. boronioides leaves were determined.
