Abstract: New naturally occurring nitrogenous compounds 1 and 2, along with a new dimeric lignan glucoside 3, have been isolated from the ethyl acetate soluble fraction of Centaurea iberica. Their structures have been elucidated through spectroscopic techniques. All the isolated compounds showed significant platelet aggregation inhibition.
Keywords: Centaurea iberica; nitrogenous compounds; dimeric lignan glucoside; anti platelet activity
