Isolation, structure elucidation, antioxidant and hepatoprotective effects of petroleum ether extract of Artemisia integrifolia L. against CCl4-induced liver injury in rats

The aim of this study was to investigate the chemical constituents of petroleum ether extract from Artemisia integrifolia L (AIPEE) and to evaluate its hepatoprotective potential and in vivo antioxidant effects. Six compounds, namely eugenol (1), linolenic acid (2), 6,7-epoxy-linolenic acid (3), linoleic acid (4), oleic acid (5) and hexadecanoic acid (6) were isolated from the AIPEE. Oral administration of AIPEE...
