1.1 Lignans

Schisandra lignans account for 2% to 8%. According to its chemical structure, schisandra lignans can be divided into 5 categories, namely dibenzocyclooctadiene lignans (including gomisinA, schisanhenol, schizandrin A, schizandrin B, schisantherin A, schizandrin C, gomisin D, (+/−)-gomisin M1, gomisinN, gomisin J, gomisinH, gomisin G, schisantherin P, angeloyl gomisin H, gomisin U, gomisin F, gomisinS, etc.), spiro benzofuranoiddibenzocyclooctadiene lignansa (including kadsulignan C, isotype Schisandrin B angeloylisogomisin B, heteroclitin F, etc.), 4-aryltetralin lignans (including enshicine, schizandriside, schisandrone, etc.), 2,3-dimethyl-1,4-diarylbutane lignans (including saurulignan B, pregomisin, macelignan, etc.), 2 , 5-diaryltetrahydrofuranlignans (henricine A, (+)-chicanine, (+)-veraguensin, ganschisandrine).

1.2 Essential oils

The main components of Schisandra volatile oil are terpenoids, including monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The main components are β-myrcene, α-terpinene, terpinolene, decahydro-1,6-bis (methylene) -4- (1-methylethyl) -naphtalene, (−)-caryophyllene oxide, (−)-β-caryophyllene, (1R, 4AS, 8AR) -1-isopropyl-4,7-dimethyl-1,2,4A, 5,6, 8A-α-amorphene, (+)-β-bisabolene, β-himachalene, (+)-Purellene [1-methyl-4-[(1R) -1,2,2-trimethylcyclopentyl ] benzene] and so on.

1.3 Polysaccharides

At present, research on Schisandra chinensis polysaccharides mainly focuses on the extraction of crude polysaccharides and evaluation of biological activity, but there are relatively few reports on its purification and single polysaccharide components.


1.4 Organic acids

Schisandra organic acids include succinic acid, trans-cinnamic acid, malicacid, 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, citric acid, quinic acidlinoleic acid, palmiticacid, oleic acid and the like.
