Abstract

Quinochalcone C-glycosides are regarded as characteristic components that have only been isolated from the florets of Carthamus tinctorius. Recently, quinochalcone C-glycosides were found to have multiple pharmacological activities, which has attracted the attention of many researchers to explore these compounds. This review aims to summarize quinochalcone C-glycosides’ physicochemical properties, chromatographic behavior, spectroscopic characteristics, as well as their biological activities, which will be helpful for further study and development of quinochalcone C-glycosides.
Keywords: Carthamus tinctorius; quinochalcone; C-glycosides; spectroscopic; biological activity Carthamus tinctorius; quinochalcone; C-glycosides; spectroscopic; biological activity
