Abstract

Two furanochromones and one furanochromone glycoside were isolated from the fruits of Ammi visnaga ( L.) Lam. They were identified as khellin, visnagin, and khellol glycoside by interpretation of spectral analyses. Quantitative determination of furanochromones in A. visnaga ( L.) ripe fruits from Hatay region ( Turkey) was carried out by ultraviolet spectrophotometry and gas chromatography. In addition, photochemical properties of furanochromones and chemical composition of essential oil were determined.
