Abstract: Matricaria ester, alpha-spinasterol, pyromeconic acid, and apigenin were isolated from flowers of Stenactis annua. Leaves were shown to contain dicaffeoylquinic acid, erigeroside, and pyromeconic acid. A procedure for determination of erigeroside was worked out; its content in dry leaves was found to be 6 mass %. Nitrogen-containing analogues of erigeroside were synthesized and their cytotoxicity was evaluated on leukemia P-388 cells; the highest activity in this test was shown by apigenin.
