- Seven species of the genus Baccharis have been analyzed for flavonoid aglycones. Many known methylated flavones, flavonols and flavanones were identified. From B. sarothroides, two novel flavonols were isolated and elucidated as 5,7,4′-trihydroxy-3,6,8-trimethoxyflavone and its methyl ether, 5,4′-dihydroxy-3,6,7,8-tetramethoxyflavone. Previous literature reports on flavonoids in Baccharis are summarized and their distribution and external occurrence is discussed. One novel diterpene and one rare triterpene were found in the terpenoid fractions that constitute most of the exudate material in these and other Compositae.
