Four isoflavanones from the stem bark of Platycelphium voense

  • From the stem bark of Platycelphium voense (Leguminosae) four new isoflavanones were isolated and characterized as (S)-5,7-dihydroxy-2 ',4 '-dimethoxy-3 '-(3 ''-methylbut-2 ''-enyl)-isoflavanone (trivial name platyisoflavanone A), (+)-5,7,2 '-trihydroxy-4 '-methoxy-3 '-(3 ''-methylbut-2 ''-enyl)-isoflavanone (platyisoflavanone B), 5,7-dihydroxy-4 '-methoxy-2 ''-(2 '''-hydroxyisopropyl)-dihydrofurano-[4 '',5 '':3 ',2 ']-isoflavanone (platyisoflavanone C) and 5,7,2 ',3 ''-tetrahydroxy-2 '',2 ''-dimethyldihydropyrano-[5 '',6 '':3 ',4 ']-isoflavanone (platyisoflavanone D). In addition, the known isoflavanones, sophoraisoflavanone A and glyasperin F; the isoflavone, formononetin; two flavones, kumatakenin and isokaempferide; as well as two triterpenes, betulin and beta-amyrin were identified. The structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic evidence.
