From the roots ofFerula mogoltavica Lipsky andF. samarcandica Eug. Kor. has been isolated a new elemanone C15H24O2 with mp 95–96°C, [α] D 23 +166°, which has been called mogoltone. On the basis of the UV, IR, and NMR spectra, its ORD curve, and its reduction products, the most probable structure and configuration of mogoltone are considered to be 7-hydroxy-7-isopropyleleman-6-one with the C7-OH in the axial position and the C5-H in the equatorial position.
