PARVEEN, MEHTAB and GHALIB, RAZA MURAD. FLAVONOIDS AND ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF LEAVES OF XYLOSMA LONGIFOLIUM. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2012, vol.57, n.1, pp.989-991. ISSN 0717-9707. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072012000100007.
The methanolic extract of the leaves of Xylosma longifolium afforded a new flavonodic compound named as Kaempferol-3-β-xylopyranoside-4'-α-rhamnoside along with Kaempferol, Quercetin, Kaempferol-3-rhamnoside, Quercetin-3-rhamnoside. Their structures were established on the basis of chemical and physical evidences (IR, 1H NMR, and MS data). It was also screened for their antimicrobial activity.
Keywords : Xylosma longifolium; flacourtiaceae; flavonoids; antimicrobial activity.
