Formatted abstract
Ptaquiloside, the major carcinogen of bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum), was isolated in high yield from milled freeze-dried plant material. Because the compound is unstable, a new method was devised to avoid steps which caused loss of activity. Modern multipulse and 2D NMR techniques allowed confirmation of the previously proposed structure, although some assignments were shown to be incorrect.
