The roots ofFerula lapidosa Eug.Korov. have yielded lapidin, C20H30O4, mp 80–81°C (hexane), [α]D20 +166° (c 1.5; chloroform) — an ester of a new carotane alcohol lapidol and angelic acid. A structure and absolute configuration has been suggested for it on the basis of chemical transformations and spectral characteristics.


Absolute Configuration Thionyl Chloride Olefinic Proton Isopropyl Group Sodium Tetrahydroborate
