THE CHEMISTRY OF THE PTAEROXYLACEAE
AbstractCompounds isolated from the Ptaeroxylaceae family are discussed. The similarity of compounds isolated from Ptaeroxylon obliquum and Cedrelopsis grevei of the Ptaeroxylaceae family and from Cneorum tricoccon and Neochamaelea pulverulenta of the Cneoraceae family suggests a very close relationship between these families.
