PMID 24422397

Abstract

To investigate the chemical constituents from Commelina communis, fifteen compounds were separated and purified by silica gel, Sephadex LH-20, and ODS column chromatography, and semi-preparative HPLC. By analyses of NMR and MS data as well as their physical and chemical properties, the structures of these compounds were identified as chrysoeriol-7-O-beta-D-glucoside( 1), methyl gallate(2), p-coumaric acid(3), protocatechuic acid(4), caffeic acid(5), p-hydroxybenzoic acid(6), 2-phenethyl-beta-D-gly-cosidase(7) , rhaponticin(8) , (7S, 8R) -dihydrodehydrodiconiferyl alcohol-9-O-beta-D-glucoside (9), isovitexin (10) , isofurcatain (11), isorhamnetin-3-O-beta-D-glucoside(12) , quercetin-3-O-alpha-L-rhamnoside (13) , isoquercitrin (14) , and 1, 2-dihydro-6, 8-dime-thoxy-7-1-(3, 5-dimethoxy-4-hydroxyphenyl) -N1, N2-bis-[2-( 4-hydroxyphenyl) ethyl] -2, 3-naphthalene dicarboxamide (15). Compounds 2, 5-9, 11, 13 were obtained from the genus Commelina for the first time.
