- Extensive phytochemical studies of the paleoendemic Tasmanian Proteaceae species Bellendena montana, Cenarrhenes nitida, and Persoonia gunnii were conducted employing pressurized hot water extraction. As part of these studies, six novel glycosides were isolated, including rare examples of glycoside-containing natural products featuring tiglic acid esters. These polar molecules may represent potential phytochemical markers in ancient Proteaceae.
