The Diterpenoids from Jatropha curcas L.

Chen Meng-jing, Hou Lin-li and Zhang Guo-wen   

Abstract: Three diterpenoids have been isolated from the roots of Jatropha curcas L. They are identified as tetracyclic aromatic diterpenoids jatropholone A, jatropholone B and new diterpenoidnamed jatrophol. The structure of the new diterpenoid was elucidated as 16-hydroxyjatropholone by spectral analysis (UV, IR, MS, 1HNMR, 13CNMR). A coumarino-lignan jatrophin,a coumarin tomentin, β-D-glycoside-β-sitosterol, taraxerol and β-sitosterol have been isolatedalso.

Key words: jatropha curcas L., Jatropholone A, Jatropholone B, Jatrophol, Jatrophin
