Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


From Manulea altissima (Scrophulariaceae) were isolated five known secoiridoid glucosides sweroside, eustomoside, eustoside, secoxyloganin and secologanoside as well as the 4″-O-rhamnopyranosyl-feruloyl ester of adoxosidic acid, named altissimoside. Also, the caffeoyl phenylethanoid glycoside verbascoside was isolated. In addition two previously unknown terpenoid esters of 6β-hydroxy 8-epi-boschnaloside, named manucoside A and B were isolated from a formerly obtained fraction from the work-up of Manulea corymbosa. The distribution of iridoid glucosides in the Scrophulariaceae is discussed.
