The Chemical Systematics Of The Rutaceae, Subfamily Toddalioideae In Africa
A recent investigation of five Ethiopian species of the Rutaceae subfamily Toddalioideae, Teclea nobilis, T. simplicifolia, T. borenensis, Vepris dainellii and V. glomerata has led to the identification of alkaloids of the 2-quinolone, dihydrofuroquinoline, linear pyranoquinoline, furoquinoline and acridone types. The distribution of alkaloids and limonoids among African genera of the Toddalioideae is discussed in relation to their potential importance for an understanding of the systematics of this group of species.
