Poskeanolide, a seco-germacranolide and other sesquiterpene lactones from Vernonia species Artículo académico uri icon


  • The aerial parts of Vernonia cinerea, collected in Costa Rica, gave four new hirsutinolides while a sample from Malawi afforded glaucolide E and two related lactones. From V. poskeana a seco-germacranolide biogenetically closely related to a new glaucolide was isolated. The investigation of two Critoniopsis species gave in addition to known lactones a further glaucolide and a vernopatensolide. A related species, V. flexipappa, only gave glaucolide B. The structures were elucidated by highfield NMR spectroscopy.
