Phenolic constituents from the lichen Parmotrema stuppeum (Nyl.) Hale and their antioxidant activity

Phenolic constituents from the lichen Parmotrema stuppeum (Nyl.) Hale and their antioxidant activity

Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. C, Journal of Biosciences 55(11-12): 1018-1022

Lichen, Parmotrema stuppeum (P. stuppeum) was successively extracted with benzene and acetone. Both the extracts were fractionated on 1% oxalic acid impregnated silica gel column to obtain four phenolic compounds. The structures of compounds were identified by 1H and 13C NMR spectra as methyl orsenillate, orsenillic acid, atranorin and lecanoric acid respectively. Antioxidant activity of benzene extract, acetone extract and isolated compounds were evaluated in a beta-carotene-linoleate model system. The pure compounds showed moderate antioxidant activity. This is the first report on the isolation and characterisation of compounds from the lichen P. stuppeum as well as on their antioxidant activity.
