An efficient 1H NMR spectroscopic approach for determining the relative configurations of lignans with a 7,9′:7′,9-diepoxy moiety has been established. Using the chemical shift differences of H2-9 and H2-9′ (ΔδH-9 and ΔδH-9′), the configurations of 8-H and 8-OH furofuran lignans can be rapidly and conveniently determined. The rule is applicable for data acquired in DMSO-d6, methanol-d4, or CDCl3. Notably, the rule should be applied carefully when the C-2 or C-6 substituent of the aromatic rings may alter the dominant conformers of the furofuran moiety.

Covering: 2009 to 2015 Lignans and neolignans are a large group of natural products derived from the oxidative coupling of two C6–C3 units. Owing to their biological activities ranging from antioxidant, antitumor, anti-inflammatory to antiviral properties, they have been used for a long time both in ethnic as well as in conventional medicine. This review describes 564 of the latest examples of naturally occurring lignans and neolignans, and their glycosides in some cases, which have been isolate...

Extracts from the leaves of the Bangladeshi medicinal plant Terminalia citrina were prepared, and 13 new furofuran lignan glucosides, terminalosides A–K (1–4, 6–12), 2-epiterminaloside D (5), and 6-epiterminaloside K (13), were characterized using various spectroscopic techniques. Twelve of the isolates were found to contain rare tetraoxygenated aryl groups in their structures. Analysis of the NMR chemical shifts for the oxymethine signals in the furofuran ring suggested a pragmatic approach to ...

In recent years, certain “new” naturally occurring compounds (1–28) with 3,5-dioxygenated aromatic rings have been reported. A comparison of the NMR data of these compounds with the data of four model compounds (A–D) indicated that the structures of these “new” compounds were erroneous. The reason for the incorrect elucidation of the structures of 1–28 was attributed to “deceptively simple” 1H NMR spectra, which displayed two broad singlets with integrations of 1:2 for H-2 and H-5, H-6, respecti...

Sesaminol triglucoside (STG), the most abundant lignan glycoside existing in sesame cake/meal, has exhibited various biological activities. However, little information about its in vitro fermentation with intestinal microbiota is available. Therefore, the effect of STG from sesame cake on the fermentation of human fecal microbiota was evaluated. First, high-purity STG was successfully prepared from defatted sesame cake by extraction with 80% ethanol and simple purification procedures of polyamid...
