Chromatographic separation of the 80% aqueous methanol extract (AME) of Jatropha multifida Linn. leaves has yielded three novel biapigenin di-C-glucosides, i.e., 6,6″-di-C-β-glucopyranosyl-methylene-(8,8″)biapigenin (7), 3,6″-di-C-β-glucopyranosyl-methylene-(6,8″)-biapigenin (8), and 6,6″-di-C-β-glucopyranosyl-methylene-(3,8″)-biapigenin (9), named jatrophenols I–III. In addition, seven known polyphenolic metabolites were identified as apigenin 7-O-β-neohespredoside (1), ferulic acid (2), quercetrin (3), vicinin-II (4), isoorientin (5), vitexin (6), and luteolin (10) for the first time from this species. The AME of the plant was reported for the first time to have significant analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antihypertensive effects.
