Main Article Content


Three compounds were isolated from the rhizome part of Canna edulis for the first time including liquiritigenin, methyl caffeate and uracil. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods as MS and NMR.


Canna edulis Ker Gawl, liquiritigenin, methyl caffeate, uracil.
