Abstract

Chemical investigation on the constituents of Landoltia punctata led to the isolation and identification of 17 compounds, four of which were new and identified as (3b,24S)-9,19-cycloartane-3,22,24,25-tetraol 3-O-[b-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→2)]-[b-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)]-b-D-glucopyranoside (1), (3b,24S)-9,19-cycloartane-3,24,25-triol 3-O-[b-d-glucopyranosyl-(1→2)]-[b-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)]-b-D-glucopyranoside (2), 3,4'-dihydroxy-7,3'-dimethoxyflavan-5-O-b-D-glucopyranoside (3) and 3,4'-dihydroxy-4,7,3'-trimethoxyflavan-5-O-b-D-glucopyranoside (4). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic, chemical, and biochemical methods. Thus, cycloartane triterpenoids were discovered in the Lemnaceae family for the first time. Compound 3 showed antioxidant capacity in the positively charged 2,2'-azino-bis-3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid radical (ABTS+•) and superoxide anion radical scavenging assays.
