The chloroform extract of Croton lechleri sap was chemically examined, and the major constituents characterized by mass and NMR spectroscopy. In addition to a number of known compounds, such as 1,3,5-trimethoxybenzene, 2,4,6-trimethoxyphenol,3,4-d...

(Euphorbiaceae) sap was analyzed by GC/MS to determine the volatile constituents. The major components were: ethyl acetate (39.68%), ethyl propionate (14.03%), 2-methyl butanol (9.06%), 2-methyl-butyl acetate (6.00%...

Further chemical examination of the constituents in the bark of Croton lechleri led to isolation of two new diterpenoidal compounds, korberin A and korberin B. Their structure was elucidated by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic methods, and they were s...
