Acetyldigitoxins

Title: Acetyldigitoxins
Molecular Formula: C43H66O14
Molecular Weight: 806.98
Percent Composition: C 64.00%, H 8.24%, O 27.76%
Literature References: Obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis of lanatoside A, q.v. Composed of the aglycone digitoxigenin and 3 mols digitoxose, to one of which an acetyl group is attached. Acetyldigitoxin-a differs from acetyldigitoxin-b in the position of the acetyl group. The b-form is obtained either by splitting off the glucose residue from lanatoside A by means of enzymes, or by extraction from the leaves of Digitalis ferruginea L., Scrophulariaceae. The a-form can be obtained from acetyldigitoxin-b by heating in an anhydrous or aq organic solvent at pH 3.5 to 8: Stoll, Kreis, US 2776963 (1957 to Sandoz).
