URZUA, ALEJANDRO. SECONDARY METABOLITES IN THE EPICUTICLE OF HAPLOPAPPUS FOLIOSUS DC. (ASTERACEAE). J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.49, n.2, pp. 137-141. ISSN 0717-9707. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072004000200006.
From the CH2Cl2 extract of the surface of Haplopappus foliosus, monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, flavonoids, coumarins, phenyl propanoids, n-alkanes and different miscellaneous compounds were identified. The complexity of the chemistry in terms of number of families and compounds makes attractive the use of this specie as a model to study variations in the cuticle chemistry, triggered by different ecological pressures. Keywords: Haplopappus foliosus; Monoterpenes; Sesquiterpenes; Flavonoids; Coumarins; phenyl propanoids, n-Alkanes; miscellaneous compounds
