Abstract
It can be assumed that sesquiterpene lactones and natural phytosteroids (ecdysones) are the characteristic compounds of the plants from the Asteraceae family. They display certain pharmacological properties and thus are helpful in chemical descriptions of the Asteraceae tribes, subtribes and species. Also some phenolic glycosides found in genus Klasea Cass, and in genus Centaurea L. may be of medical and chemotaxonomical significance. Our studies on the species of the aforementioned taxons and the isolation of several compounds allowed for interesting conclusions of phytochemical and taxonomical nature.
