Abstract:
Antisickling activity of anthocyanins extract from a Congolese plant (Hymenocardia acida Tul.) was evaluated using Emmel test. Chromatographic separations using chloroform-benzene (2:1) provided three fractions A1, A2 and A3 with the most polar [A1 (TLC, Rf = 0.21)] exhibiting the highest activity. Thermal kinetic degradation of this fraction at 100 and 120°C produced a first order rate constants k = 2.64x10-4 and 4.08x10-4, respectively. Structural elucidation of isolated compounds is in progress.
