Scutia buxifolia Reiss.

Nota de alcance

PARTE UTILIZADA= Used part: Cáscaras de tronco y hojas.

ACCIÓN FARMACOLÓGICA= Pharmacological action: Tónico cardíaco, diuréticas, hipotensoras.

COMPOSICIÓN QUÍMICA= Chemical composition: From the bark extract of S. buxifolia, the known alkaloids scutianines B, C, D and E, and the new one, scutianine H, have been isolated. The structure of scutianine H, based mainly on its MS fragmentation and on the MIKES (mass-analysed ion kinetic energy spectrum) of the base ion peak, is suggested. From the 13C NMR spectral analysis of the diastereoisomeric scutianines D and E, information for the assignment of the stereochemistry of the β-hydroxyleucine unit in related alkaloids was also obtained. © 1979.

ZONA GEOGRAFICA= Geografical zone: Brasil, Uruguay.
