Abstract

Five compounds of iridoids, lignan and phenylpropanoid glycosides were isolated from the roots ofValeriana jatamansi by column chromatography. Their structures were elucidated as 11-methoxyviburtinal (1), baldrinal (2), prinsepiol-4-O-β-d-glucoside (3), coniferin (4), and hexacosanic acid (5) by spectroscopic analysis. 11-Methoxyviburtinal was a new compound, and others were isolated from the plant for the first time.
