Triterpenes from the resin of Boswellia neglecta
AbstractThe resin of Boswellia neglecta yielded four triterpenes canaric acid, a -amyrin, a -amyrone and epi-a -amyrin. Canaric acid and epi-a -amyrin are isolated here for the first time from the family Burseraceae. The compounds were identified using 1D and 2D NMR techniques.
