Anabasis salsa is a perennial bush native to north Sinkiang of China and is used as an insecticide in agriculture . In the present report, we describe the isolation and identification of chemical constituents from the n-BuOH extract of A. salsa. Five compounds were isolated and identified as tortoside A (1), phytolaccagenic acid-3-O-β-D-glucopyranuronide-28-β-Dglucopyranosyl ester (2), picraquassioside C (3), syringin (4), and piceoside (5). All compounds were obtained from this plant for the first time.
The branches and leaves of A. salsa were collected from north of Sinkiang, China and were identified by Assoc. Prof. Lin Yang from Lanzhou University of Technology. The branches and leaves of A. salsa (20 kg) were extracted three times with 95% ethanol. The extract was concentrated under reduced pressure, and the residue (1.2 kg) was sequentially partitioned with petroleum ether, EtOAc, and n-BuOH. The n-BuOH extract (100 g) was subjected to a series of chromatographic techniques,...
