Abstract

A phytochemical analysis of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) fresh roots and roots suffering from post-harvest physiological deterioration (PPD) has been carried out. The first isolation and identification of galactosyl diacylglycerides from fresh cassava roots is reported, as well as β-carotene, linamarin, and β-sitosterol glucopyranoside. The hydroxycoumarin scopoletin and its glucoside scopolin were identified from cassava roots during PPD, as well as trace quantities of esculetin and its glucoside esculin. There is no isoscopoletin in cassava roots during PPD.
