Author(s): Vladimir A. Kurkin
Abstract: From the flowers of Carthamus tinctorius L., cultivated in Samara Region (Russian Federation) there was isolated a new flavonoid, named us saffloroside, which has the structure of 7-О-b-D-glucopyranoside of 3, 7, 31, 41-tetrahydroxy-5-methoxyflavone (azaleatin). The chemical structure of saffloroside there was elucidated by means of 1H-NMR-, UV-spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. In the course of phytochemical investigations on the flowers of Carthamus tinctorius there were isolated also cynaroside and luteoln previously described for this plant.
