neo-Clerodane diterpenoids from the leaf exudate of Dodonaea angustifolia

Phytochemical investigation of the leaf surface exudate of Dodonaea angustifolia L.f. yielded two new neo-clerodane diterpenes, neo-clerodan-3,13-dien-16,15:18,19-diolide and 15-methoxy-neo-clerodan-3,13-dien-16,15:18,19-diolide

Scholarcy highlights

  • Phytochemical investigation of the leaf surface exudate of Dodonaea angustifolia L.f. yielded two new neo-clerodane diterpenes, neo-clerodan-3,13-dien-16,15:18,19-diolide and 15-methoxy-neo-clerodan-3,13-dien-16,15:18,19-diolide
  • The structures were determined on the basis of spectroscopic evidence
  • This additional chemical information could contribute towards solving the taxonomical controversy that exists between Dodonaea angustifolia and Dodonaea viscosa Jacq., which are morphologically similar
