CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS FROM THE AERIAL PARTS OF LANTANA INDICA ROXB.Abstract
Lantana indica Roxb. (Verbenaceae) is grown as an ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The plant is used to treat asthma, abdominal disorders, bilious fever, cancer, catarrhal infections, chicken pox, eczema, hypertension, malaria, measles, swelling, rheumatism, tetanus, and ulcers. Phytochemical investigation of a methanolic extract of the leaves led to isolating three new chemical constituents characterized n-heneitriacont-4-en-16β, 17β, 18β-triol (n-heneitriacontenol, 3), 6, 4′- dimethoxy- 7, 3′- dihydroxy flavone- 7- O- β-D-glucopyranoside (lantanaflavone 7-O-β-D-glucoside, 6), urs-12-en-3β-ol-28-oic acid 3β-D-glucopyranosyl-6´-octadecanoate (ursolic acid 3-O-β-D-glucosyl-6′-oleate, 8) along with five known compounds characterized as n- hexadecanyl oleate (1), n-octadecanyl oleate (2), oleanolic acid (4), ursolic acid (5) and oleanolic acid 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (7). The structures of all the isolated phytoconstituents have been established on the basis of spectral data analysis and chemical reactions.
