  • (Simaroubaceae) was extracted with ethanol 95 % [1].

  • An investigation of the leaves of the Madagascan Simaroubaceae Samadera madagascariensis has yielded three C18 quassinoids, 5beta,6-dihydrosamaderine A, 2-chlorosamaderine A, and samaderolactone A, and a C19 quassinoid, 3,4beta-dihydrosamaderine C, together with the known quassinoids samaderine A, samaderine B, and cedronin [3].
  • Three new limonoids, named haperforins C2 (1), F (2), and G (3), were isolated from a sample of Harrisonia perforata leaves collected in Central Vietnam [4].
