Artemisinin - colorless needle-like crystals extracted from the stems and leaves of Artemisia annua
Artemisinin is an organic compound with molecular formula C15H22O5 and relative molecular mass 282.34.
Artemisinin is a colorless needle-like crystal with a melting point of 156-157°C. It is easily soluble in chloroform, acetone, ethyl acetate and benzene, soluble in ethanol and ether, slightly soluble in cold petroleum ether, and almost insoluble in water. Because of its special peroxy group, it is unstable to heat and is easily decomposed by moisture, heat and reducing substances.
Artemisinin is the most effective drug for treating drug resistance in malaria, and artemisinin-based combination therapy is the most effective and important means of treating malaria today. However, in recent years, as research progresses, other effects of artemisinin are increasingly discovered and applied, such as anti-tumor, treatment of pulmonary hypertension, anti-diabetes, embryotoxicity, antifungal, immunomodulatory, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-pulmonary fibrosis, antibacterial, cardiovascular effects and other pharmacological effects.
In October 2015, Tu Youyou was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with two other scientists for her contribution to the creation of novel antimalarial drugs-artemisinin and dihydroartemisinin.
