Chemical components of Betula utilis and Celtis australis



Chemical components of Betula utilis and Celtis australis



Indian J Chem 6(5): 231-234



The outer bark of Betula utilis contains the triterpenoids betulin (good yield), lupeol, oleanolic acid and acetyloleanolic acid in addition to leucocyanidin. The inner bark is rich in polymeric leuco-anthocyanidins. Betulin, 3,3[image]-di-O-methylellagic acid, its glycoside, gallic acid and quebrachitol are present in the bark of Celtis australis. Contrary to earlier reports, 3,3[image]-di-O-methylellagic acid does not give a positive Griessmayer test.
