The structure of the title compound, 7-methoxy-2-methyl-4,5-dihydroxyanthracene-9,10-dione, C(16)H(12)O(5), was originally reported by Ulický et al. [Acta Cryst. (1991). C47, 1879-1881] in the space group P2(1)2(1)2(1) [polymorph (Io)]. The new polymorph, (Im), crystallizes in the space group P2(1)/c. The molecular structures...

The dried roots of Polygonum multiflorum Thunb. (Heshouwu) and their processed products (Zhi-heshouwu) are widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, yet their therapeutic effects are different. Previous investigations focused mainly on the differences between Heshouwu and Zhi-heshouwu in the contents...

Chrysophanol, physcion, emodin, floribundone-1, 5,7'-physcion-fallacinol, and the novel 5,7'-physcion-physcion-10'-C-alpha-arabinopyranoside were isolated from the stem bark of Senna septemtrionalis. The structures of these secondary metabolites were determined on the basis of spectroscopic analysis, especially from NMR spectra in conjunction with COSY...
