Chemistry and Pharmacology
From the leaves of Cassia angustifolia VAHL a new glycoside, sennoside C, has been isolated in crystalline form and shown by chemical means to be the 8,8′-di-glucoside of rhein-aloe-emodin-dianthrone. This confirms the tentative formula of sennoside C by LEMLI, who deduced it by paper chromatography of the breakdown products of the aglycone. Sennoside C has the same stereochemical configuration as sennoside A.
