Isolation And Hypotensive Activity Of Three New Phytoconstituents From Seeds Of Daucus Carota.
Three extracts of Daucus carota have been prepared and studied for their hypotensive activity. Hydroalcoholic extract was found to exhibit prominent activity when compared to the reference standard minoxidil. In an attempt to isolate the active constituents responsible for this activity, three new phytoconstituents were isolated and their structures were elucidated from spectral evidence (IR, NMR and Mass spectra). Hypotensive activity of these compounds was also studied.PDF
