Wang Xian-rong, Wang Zhao-quan and Li Ying   

Abstract: The flowers of Abelmoschus manihot L. Medic have curative effect in the treatment of chronic bronchitis patients and toothache. Five flavonoid compounds have been isolated from the flower of this plant and identified as quercetin-3-robinobioside, quercctin- 3′-glucosidc, hyperin, quercetin and myricetln respectively, according to spectroscopic analysis (UV, IR, NMR), preparation of derivatives, acid hydrolysis and determination of physico-chemical constants. The quercetin-3-robinobioside and the qucrcctin-3′-glucoside are not isolated so far from Abelmoschus.
