Phú N Đình Q, Anh LT, Hoài NT, Đức HV. Isolation and structural determination of some triterpenes and sterols from Glycosmis parviflora. hueuni-jns [Internet]. 2020Jun.30 [cited 2024May18];129(1C):93-8. Available from:


Four secondary metabolites, namely, friedelin (1), arborinol (2), isoarborinol (3), and stigmasterol (4), were isolated from the aerial parts of Glycosmis parviflora (Sims) Little. Their chemical structures were established on the basis of NMR spectral evidence and in comparison with reported data. This is the first report on the isolation of compounds (1-4) from G. parviflora.
