    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Two species of Plantago, namely P. Alpina and P. altissima were investigated. From the former, nine iridoid glucosides and verbascoside were isolated. Together with the known iridoids gardoside, geniposidic acid, 8-epi-loganic acid, mussaenosidic acid, aucubin, monomelittoside and melittoside, two new glucosides were found: 10-O-acetylgeniposidic acid and alpinoside, another compound with a 10-O-acetyl group. From P. altissima verbascoside and isoverbascoside were isolated together with the known iridoids gardoside, 8-epi-loganic acid, catalpol, aucubin, and hookerioside as well as the new compound desacetylhookerioside.
