In view of the observation that a methanol extract of Artemisia capillaris herbs has shown intense suppressive activity in carbon tetrachloride-induced liver lesion in mice, the extract has been fractionated by monitoring the hepatotoxic activity to furnish the known flavonol, eupatolitin (III), and a new flavone, arcapillin, as the liver-protective principles. The structure of arcapillin has been elucidated as that represented by formula I on the basis of chemical and physical data.
