Novel extraction studies on Garcinia mangostana roots was chemically investigated. Detail phytochemical studies on
the roots of Garcinia mangostana have resulted in the isolation of six compounds. The structures of these compounds
were elucidated using spectroscopic experiments namely NMR, IR, UV and MS. The root bark of Garcinia mangostana
furnished six xanthones, ?-mangostin (1), ?-mangostin (2), ?-mangostin (3), garcinone-D (4), mangostanol (5), and
gartanin (6).
