Introduction: Only chemical study on the lichen Parmotrema dilatatum was found so far in the world. The lichen Parmotrema dilatatum widely distributed in Lam Dong province, Vietnam has been studied about the isolation and elucidation of several metabolites.
Methods: Phytochemical study on the polar fractions of this lichen was carried out by using various chromatographic methods including thin-layer chromatography and normal phase silica gel chromatography.
Results: Eight phenolic compounds were isolated. The chemical structures of isolated compounds were unambiguously elucidated by NMR spectroscopy and comparison with the data in the literature. These are 8'-O-methylsalazinic acid, salazinic acid, 8'-O-methylprotocetraric acid, diffractaic acid, lecanorin, lecanoric acid, isolecanoric acid, and diorcinolic acid.
Conclusion: Among them, 8'-O-methylsalazinic acid was found as a new natural product.
