OLIVEIRA, Patrícia Emanuella S.; SANTOS, Wagner S. dos; CONSERVA, Lucia M.  and  LEMOS, Rosangela P. de Lyra. Chemical constituents from leaves and stem of Coccoloba mollis Casaretto (Polygonaceae). Rev. bras. farmacogn. [online]. 2008, vol.18, suppl., pp.713-717. ISSN 0102-695X.

This work describes the isolation of a pentacyclic triterpene (simiarenol), described for the first time in this family, two phytosteroids (sitostenone and sitosterol), a diterpene (trans-phytol) and a benzenoid (vanillic acid), described for the first time in this genus, from leaves and stem of Coccoloba mollis. These compounds were identified on basis of their spectral data (IR, MS and NMR, including DEPT and HMQC), as well as by comparison with literature data.

Keywords : Coccoloba mollis; Polygonaceae; triterpene; benzenoid; phytosteroids; diterpene.
