Abstract

Phytochemical Investigation Of The Aerial Parts Of Tribulus Terestris Linn

Author(s): M Ali, A Chaudhary, R Ramachandram

Phytochemical studies on the aerial parts of Tribulus terrestris Linn. (Family. Zygophyllaceae) resulted in the isolation of a tetracyclic alkenone, named phenanthroidodecanone and an aliphatic ester. The structures of the new phytoconstituents have been established as cyclopentaperhydro-phenanthranyl-17-dode-l8-ol-20-on-24-ene and trideca-2-oic acid-3,4-diol-8-en-1 -decan-10'-oic acid’-1' on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical means.
