Phytochemical Investigation Of The Aerial Parts Of Tribulus Terestris Linn
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 acidâ€™-1' on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical means.
