Abstract top

The title compound, C17H20O5, an eremophilane sesquiternoid, was isolated from the roots of Ligularia lapathifolia. The molecule contains four fused rings of which the six-membered ring A adopts a half-chair conformation, the six-membered ring B adopts a chair conformation, the five-membered ring C is almost planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.015 Å) and the five-membered ring D adopts an envelope conformation with the quaternary C atom as the flap. The methyl and the ethoxy groups adopt a syn conformation and the A/B ring junction is cis-fused. No directional intermolecular interactions could be identified in the crystal.

Comment top

The title compound, 8β-ethoxyeremophil-3,7(11)-diene-8α,12(6α,15)-diolide (Fig. 1), was isolated from the roots of Ligularia lapathifolia (Fei et al., 2007). The title compound is composed of four rings, two six-membered and two five-menbered. The six-membered ring A adopt a half-chair conformation, which has pucking paramaters (Cremer & Pople, 1975; Boeyens, 1978) Q = 0.4766 (19) Å, θ = 130.0 (2)°, φ = 133.8 (3)°. The six-membered ring B adopt a chair conformation with pucking paramaters Q = 0.5073 (17) Å, θ = 22.08 (19)°, φ = 205.7 (5)°. The five-membered ring C is almost planar with a mean torsion angle of 1.50 (8)°. The five-membered ring D adopt an envelope conformation. The A/B ring junction is cis-fused (torsion angle C14—C5—C10—H10 = 43°).

Experimental top

The air-dried roots of L. lapathifolia (3.6 kg) were powdered and extracted with petroleum ether -diethyl ether-acetone (1:1:1) three times successively at room temperature. The combined extracts were concentrated in vacuum to obtain a residue (270 g), which was subjected to silica gel CC and eluted with petroleum ether-acetone (50:1, 20:1, 8:1, 5:1, 2:1, 1:1, 0:1). On the basis of differences in composition indicated by TLC, seven crude fractions (A—G) were obtained. Fraction B was further fractionated on a silica gel column using petroleum ether-acetone (30:1, 10:1, 5:1, 2:1) to give four crude fractions (B1—B4). Fraction B3 was further fractionated on a silica gel column using petroleum ether-acetone (20:1, 8:1, 2:1) to obtain the pure title compound. Colourless blocks were obtained by slow evaporation of a methanol solution at room terperature.

Refinement top

All H atoms attached to C atoms were fixed geometrically and treated as riding with C—H = 0.96 Å (methyl), 0.97 Å (methylene), 0.98 Å (methine) and 0.93 Å (C=CH) with Uiso(H) = 1.2Uep(C) or Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(Cmethyl). The Flack parameter tentatively indicates the absolute structure.

Experimental. CrysAlisPro, Agilent Technologies, Version 1.171.36.28 (release 01-02-2013 CrysAlis171 .NET) (compiled Feb 1 2013,16:14:44) Empirical absorption correction using spherical harmonics, implemented in SCALE3 ABSPACK scaling algorithm.

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
