ABSTRACT

The seeds of Lens culinaris Medik, syn. L. esculenta Moench (Leguminosae) are a good source of essential minerals and are used to purify blood, to cure old skin marks and to treat various kidney and gastric ailments. Phytochemical investigation of the seeds led to isolation of a new aromatic ester characterized as 3'-methyl–n-pentadecanyl benzoate (3) along with β-sitosteryl n-octadec-9'-enoate (1), n -tetradecanyl linoleiate (2) and n-octatriacosanoic acid (4). The structures of these phytoconstituents have been established on the basis of spectral data analysis and chemical means.
