The new biflavone moghatin (3″′-hydroxycupressuflavone) was isolated from Moghat, the dried peeled roots of Glossostemon bruguieri (Desf.), together with five known compounds: 4′-methoxyisoscutellargin, sesamin, chrysophanol, emodin and methoxyemodin (physcion). The structures of these compounds were assigned on the basis of spectroscopic data. Occurrence of these compounds in Moghat is reported here for the first time. View Full-Text
