Lotaustralin from Rhodiola rosea roots

Fitoterapia. 2004 Sep;75(6):612-4. doi: 10.1016/j.fitote.2004.06.002.


Lotaustralin was isolated as a mixture of two diastereoisomeric forms from the methanol extract of Rhodiola rosea roots, together with the known compounds rosavin, rosarin, rosin, rosiridin, salidroside, and beta-sitosterol. The structure of lotaustralin was established by 1D and 2D-NMR spectroscopy, including 1H-1H COSY, NOESY, HMQC, and HMBC, and FAB and HR MS.
