Summary of "Isolation, characterization and DFT studies of epoxy ring containing new withanolides from Withania coagulans Dunal."

A new withanolide named as withacoagulin J (1) along with a known withanolide H (2) from Withania coagulans Dunal are reported in this paper. The isolated compounds were elucidated by using 1D-NMR (H NMR, C NMR) and 2D-NMR including homonuclear (COSY, NOESY) and heteronuclear (HSQC, HMBC); along with Mass spectrometry, UV-Visible and IR spectroscopic techniques. The molecular formula based on Fast-Atom Bombardment Mass Spectrometry [FAB-MS (M + 1)] for 1 and 2 were deduced as CHO and CHO with m/z values 453.2624 and 471.6041, respectively. The quantum mechanical studies of both compounds are based on DFT calculations. The DFT studies show band gaps of 4.86 and 4.83 eV for 1 and 2, respectively. The band gaps of 1 and 2 reflect high stability and resistivity towards oxidation-reduction reactions. The energies of HOMO and LUMO for compound 1 are -6.11 and -1.25 eV and for compound 2: -6.47 and -1.64 eV respectively. Theoretical and experimental FTIR data closely match for both the compounds which support the high accuracy of the computational protocol selection. Other parameters such as bond lengths, bond angles and dihedral angles for both compounds are also studied.
