Antioxidant Phenylpropanoid Glycosides from Buddleja Davidii


A 2009 article from the Journal of Enzyme Inhibition and Medicinal Chemistry (vol 24, no 4, p.993) examining the antioxidant properties of compounds derived from the Buddleja Davidii plant. The authors conclude there is enough antioxidant activity and effectiveness to warrant further study and development of these extracts.

As a part of our ongoing search for antioxidative constituents from the genus Buddleja, we investigated the antioxidative activities of the solvent-partitioned fractions from the EtOH extract of the whole plant of Buddleja davidii. The n-BuOH-soluble fraction of the plant showed stronger antioxidative activity than that of the other fractions 7.39±0.04 μg/mL, IC50 in hydroxyl radical inhibitory activity test) which prompted us to carryout phytochemical studies on this plant.

The compounds 1–10 could lead to compounds for the treatment of oxidative stress-related human diseases. However, a further in vivo study would help in exploring the pharmacological properties of these compounds.
