Abstract

URZUA, ALEJANDRO; SANTANDER, ROCÍO  and  SOTES, GASTÓN. ARISTOLOCHIC ACIDS FROM ARISTOLOCHIA BRIDGESII, A HOST-PLANT OF BATTUS POLYDAMAS ARCHIDAMAS. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.54, n.4, pp.437-438. ISSN 0717-9707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072009000400025.

The present study confrms the hypothesis that aristolochic acids are present in Aristolochia bridgesii. The chemical composition of aristolochic acids in this species is qualitatively similar to that of Aristolochia chilensis, with the two species differing only in the total amount of aristolochic acids present, and in the relative proportions of each aristolochic acid. These results are consistent with the fact that the two Aristolochia species in Chile both serve as host plants to Battus polydamas archidamas (Lepidoptera, Papilionidae, Troidinii).

Keywords : Aristolochia bridgesii; Aristolochia chilensis; Aristolochiaceae; Aristolochic acids; Battus polydamas archidamas; Papilionidae; Troidinii.
