Abstract

Blumenol A (1), blumenol B (2) and loliolide (3), together with the ubiquitous β–sitosterol, α–amyrin and β–amyrin, were isolated from the organic extract of the leaves of Heliotropium angiospermum. Structural elucidation of the metabolites was carried out by analysis of their spectroscopic data and/or by comparison with those reported in the literature.

Key words: Heliotropium angiospermum, Boraginaceae, blumenol A, blumenol B, loliolide.

 

Resumen

Blumenol A, blumenol B y loliólido, además de β–sitosterol, α–amirina y β–amirina, fueron aislados del extracto orgánico de las hojas de Heliotropium angiospermum. La elucidación estructural de los metabolitos se llevó a cabo mediante la interpretación de sus datos espectroscópicos y/o por comparación de los mismos con los reportados en la literatura.

Palabras clave: Heliotropium angiospermum, Boraginaceae, blumenol A, blumenol B y loliólido.
