Abstract

On the phytochemical investigation of a 70% ethanol extract of the fruits of Opuntia ficus-indica, (Cacataceae), we could result in the isolation of thirteen phenolic compounds including seven flavonoids (1 - 9) and four simple phenolic glycosides (10 - 13) by column chromatographic methods. Among the isolated compounds, picein (11), androsin (12), and 1-O-feruloyl-β-D-glucopyranoside (13) were isolated for the first time from O. ficus-indica; additionally, this is the first report benzyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (10) from the genus Opuntia. The structures of the compounds were determined by spectral data analysis which included 1D, 2D NMR spectrum and ESIMS.
