Nordihydrocapsiate, a New Capsinoid From the Fruits of a Nonpungent Pepper, Capsicum Annuum

J Nat Prod. 1999 Feb;62(2):335-6. doi: 10.1021/np9803373.


A new capsiate-like substance, named nordihydrocapsiate (1), has been isolated from the fruits of a nonpungent cultivar, CH-19 Sweet, of pepper (Capsicum annuum). The structure of 1 was determined to be 4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl 7-methyloctanoate by spectroscopic methods.
