PEREZ-CASTORENA, Ana-Lidia. Triterpenes and other Metabolites from Tibouchina urvilleana. J. Mex. Chem. Soc [online]. 2014, vol.58, n.2, pp.218-222. ISSN 1870-249X.

The chemical study of the leaves and stems of Tibouchina urvilleana afforded triterpenes of different types: four oleanane, four ursane, one glutinane, and one taraxerane. Also, two flavonoids and two sterols were isolated. Additionally, the toxicity and topical anti-inflammation activity of the extracts were tested.

Keywords : Tibouchina urvilleana; Melastomataceae; triterpenes; flavonoids; sterols.
