Chemosystematic investigations of irregular diterpenes in Anisotome and related New Zealand Apiaceae.

A chemosystematic HPLC-UV and HPLC-MS investigation of New Zealand members of the Apiaceae was performed. Diterpenes were identified and quantified in methanolic extracts from subaerial parts of 28 taxa and 54 samples of Aciphylla, Anisotome, Apium, Gingidia, Lignocarpa, Oreomyrrhis, and Scandia. Six diterpenes (1-2, 4-7) and four polyacetylenes (8-11) were identified. The known compounds were the diterpenes anisotomenoic acid 1, anisotomene-1-ol 2, 16-acetoxyanisotomenoic acid 4 and anisotomene-1,12-diol 5; and the polyacetylenes falcarinol 8, falcarindiol 9, (+)-9(Z),17-octadecadiene-12,14-diyne-1,11,16-triol 10, and (+)-9(Z),17-octadecadiene-12,14-diyne-1,11,16-triol 1-acetate 11. New irregular diterpenes 13,14-dihydroanisotom-12E-ene-1,14-diol 6 and 14-methoxy-13,14-dihydroanisotom-12E-ene-1-ol 7 were isolated from A. haastii. Isomers of the new semi-synthetic diterpene 16-hydroxyanisotomenoic acid 3 were detected in extracts of Anisitone flexuosa. Structure elucidation was performed by HR mass spectrometry and 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. In crude extracts, compounds were identified by their HPLC retention times and their on-line HPLC-UV and MS spectra. Anisotomene diterpenes occurred in eight out of 16 species of the genus Anisotome, but were not detected in any of the other genera. In contrast, polyacetylenes were present in all the genera investigated.[1]
