Abstract

The methanolic extract from the flowers of Chrysanthemum indicum L., Chrysanthemi Indici Flos, was found to show inhibitory activity against rat lens aldose reductase. By bioassay-guided separation, the active components, such as flavone and flavone glycosides, were isolated from the extract together with three new eudesmane-type sesquiterpenes, kikkanols A, B, and C. The structures of kikkanols A, B, and C were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence, which included application of the modified Mosher's method.
