Abstract

CARVALHO, Mário G. de et al. Chemical constituents from Piptadenia rigida Benth., Fabaceae, "angico". Rev. bras. farmacogn. [online]. 2011, vol.21, n.3, pp. 397-401.  Epub Mar 18, 2010. ISSN 0102-695X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-695X2011005000037.

The phytochemical investigation of the roots of Piptadenia rigida Benth., Fabaceae, known as "angico", afforded sitosterol, lupeol, betuline, the chalcone isoliquiritigenin, the flavonoids, 7,4'-dihydroxyflavone, 7,3',4'-trihydroxyflavone, 7,8,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavanone, 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxybenzaldehyde and methyl-3,4-dihydroxy-benzoate. Both flavones were also isolated from the branches of this plant. Five derivatives of the aldehyde were obtained by diazomethane treatment. The structures of compounds were identified by IR, NMR and mass spectral data analysis of natural compounds and some derivatives, and by comparison with literature data.

Keywords : flavonoids; Piptadenia rigida; terpenoids; benzoyl aldehyde derivatives.
