Chemical Analysis of Burdock Root Constituents

2013 Asian Journal of Chemistry  
An ethanolic solution of extracted burdock root was concentrated, suspended by water and extracted by petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and n-butanol. Then, the solution was purified by silica gel, Sephadex LH-20 and C18 column chromatography to obtain 17 compounds. Nine structures of compounds, identified according to physical and chemical properties using IR, UV, ESIMS, 1 H NMR, 13 C NMR and other methods, include 3 petroleum ethers (β-sitosterol, oleanolic acid, ursolic acid), 4

Oleanolic acid, ursolic acid, clove lignans, ethyl-β-D-pyran fruit glycoside, succinic acid and 5-hydroxy maltol were first isolated from burdock.
