To study the chemical constituents of Blumea laciniata.
The chemical constituents of the ethyl acetate fraction of ethanol extract from Blumea laciniata were isolated with column chromatographic techniques. The structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis and comparison with their published datas.
Five compounds were isolated and identified as: protocatechuic acid (1), chrysoeriol (2), apigenin (3), 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxbenzoic acid (4), scopolet (5).
Compounds 1 - 5 are isolated from this plant for the first time, and also obtained from this genus for the first time.
