Abstract

A straight-chain oligomeric structure composed of five secoisolariciresinoldiglucoside (SDG) residues interconnected by four 3-hydroxy-3-methyl glutaric acid (HMGA) residues (molecular weight ca. 4000 Da) was assigned to the main lignan of flaxseed on the basis of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR).
