S. Jasmine Mary, Dr. A . John Merina

Abstract :

The fresh flowers of Opuntia stricta Haw syn.O.dillenii Haw is a shrub belonging to Cactaceae family have been found to contain Rhamnetin and its glycoside Rhamnetin–3–O–rutinoside. The structure of the above compounds have been ascertained by paper chromatography, UV,C13 NMR and H1 NMR spectral values. The glycoside isolated from the flowers of Opuntia stricta has antioxidant property. These components were used as inhibitors of drug induced lipid peroxidation.
