Isolation, structure elucidation and chemical synthesis of compounds with hypoglycemic activity from Gynura divaricata and G. bicolor

Gynura divaricata and G. bicolor are two plants that are used in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of diabetes. In this project their hypoglycemic activity is investigated in pharmacological studies. Afterwards, attempts will be undertaken to isolate the active compounds and their derivatives.
