      Planta Med. 84(18), 1348-1354 (2018). A subfraction (obtained through liquid-liquid partition and column chromatography) of the ethanolic extract of whole Vernonia cinerea plants (Asteraceae, subf. Cichorioideae) was further fractioned by reverse-phase SPE (solid-phase extraction) followed by preparative TLC on silica gel layer (eluent not given). For verification, zones were detected by spraying with anisaldehyde solution with 10 % sulfuric acid, followed by heating at 100 °C. Further purification by reverse-phase HPLC allowed the isolation of 6 hirsutinolide-type sesquiterpenoids (all with a oxacyclonane forming an ether bridge), including vernolides A and B.
