Abstract

Abstract A chemical investigation of biologically active compounds from the aerial parts of Rheum palaestinum has led to the isolation and identification of two stilbenes; trans-resveratrol-3- O-β- d-glucopyranosid ( I) and rhaponticin ( II). The structures of these stilbenes were established on the basis of spectroscopic data including MS and NMR. Compounds ( I) and ( II) have been shown to exhibit anti-platelet activity. Moreover, chrysophanol was also identified and characterized.
