Resumo: Autonoë madeirensis (Menezes) Speta is a Hyacinthaceae endemic from the Portuguese Archipelago of Madeira.1,2 Previous studies on Hyacinthaceae species have shown that they produce a large number of biologically important secondary metabolites, such as triterpenoid and steroid glycosides3, flavone and homoisoflavanone glycosides4 and polyhydroxyalkaloids.5 Included in a systematic phytochemical study of the bulbs of A. madeirensis, we report now the structural identification of three different classes of compounds, mainly by GC-EIMS, ESIMS and tandem mass spectrometry. The phytochemical study was performed using total ethanolic extracts that were fractionated by solvents of increasing polarity. The compounds identified were 2-hydroxy di- and tricarboxilic acids and esters (malic acid, ethylmethylmalate, diethylmalate, citric acid, monomethylcitrate, monoethylcitrate and triethylcitrate), hydroxycinnamic esters (methyl p-coumarate, ethyl p-coumarate, and methyl ferulate), and the three major anthocyanins (cyanidin coumaroyl glycoside, peonidin coumaroyl glycoside and delphinidin diacetyl diglycoside) and a flavone diglucoside, being the interglucosidic linkage (12), to the best of our knowledge, reported for the first time in a diglucoside of apigenin. The analytic conditions, retention times and fragmentation pattern reported now may constitute a fast tool for the systematic identification of these compounds in plant extracts.
