Introduction The Derris genus is known to contain flavonoid derivatives, including prenylated flavanones and isoflavonoids such as rotenoids, which are generally associated with significant biological activity. Objective To develop an efficient preparative isolation procedure for bioactive cajaflavanone. Methodology Fast centrifugal partition chromatography (FCPC) was optimised to purify cajaflavanone from Derris ferruginea stems in a single step as compared to fractionation from the cyclohexane extract by successive conventional solid-liquid chromatography procedures. The purification yield, purity, time and solvent consumption per procedure are described. The anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-leishmanial, anti-plasmodial, anti-oxidant activities and the inhibition of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) by cajaflavanone accumulation are described. Results FCPC enabled cajaflavanone purification in a single separation step, yielding sufficient quantities to perform in vitro biological screening. Interestingly, cajaflavanone had an inhibitory effect on the formation of AGEs, without displaying any in vitro anti-oxidant activity. Conclusion A simple and efficient procedure, in comparison with other preparative methods, for bioactive cajaflavone purification has been developed using FCPC.

A new isoflavonoid, 5-hydroxy-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-8-isopropenyl-8,9- dihydro-4H-furo-[2,3-h]-chromen-4-one named derrisisoflavone G (1), four known prenylated flavanones (2-5), four known isoflavonoids (6-9) and two phenolic derivatives (10, 11) have been isolated from crude extracts of Derris ferruginea stems and leaves. Compounds 1-11 were identified using spectroscopic methods whereas an unambiguous structural assignment of 1 was accomplished through hemi-synthesis. Compounds 2-5 exhibited strong in vitro antiparasitic activity against Plasmodium falciparum and Leishmania major but with poor selectivity, whereas 1-5 significantly inhibited the formation of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs).
