Abstract

Volutaria lippii (L.) Cass. ex Maire, syn. Centaurea lippii (L.), (Asteraceae) is a plant from the central region of Algeria, considerably distributed in all Mediterranean areas. Herein, the antioxidant activity of the three derived fractions [chloroform (CHCl3), ethyl acetate (EtOAc) and n-butanol (n-BuOH)] of the 70% methanol extract of the aerial parts (leaves and flowers), was assessed by using CUPRAC, ABTS, DPPH free radical scavenging, and beta-carotene bleaching methods. The results obtained allowed to guide the fractionation of EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions by CC followed by purification by TLC and reverse phase HPLC. A guaianolide glucoside, 3 beta-hydroxy-11 beta,13-dihydrodehydrocostuslactone 8 alpha-O-(6'-acetyl-beta-glucopyranoside) (1), never reported in the literature, was isolated together with other known compounds (2-14). Their structures were elucidated by the extensive use of 1 D- and 2 D-NMR experiments along with ESI-MS analyses and with comparison with literature data.
