CUADRA, Pedro and FAJARDO, Víctor. A NEW LIGNAN FROM THE PATAGONIAN VALERIANA CARNOSA Sm. Bol. Soc. Chil. Quím. [online]. 2002, vol.47, n.4, pp.361-366. ISSN 0366-1644. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0366-16442002000400006.
In addition to the known caffeoyl methyl ester, two pinoresinol type lignans were isolated from the whole plant of Valeriana carnosa Sm. One of these metabolites is 1-hydroxypinoresinol (1), which has previously been isolated from the genera Olea and Fraxinus. The other one (2) was identified as a novel compound and was characterised by using 1H (including NOE experiments), and 13C-NMR spectroscopic techniques and mass spectrometry.
