Three unprecedented purine-containing compounds, named -, -, and -zingerines as they are 5-(6-amino-9H-purin-9-yl) analogs of -, -, and -gingerols, respectively, were isolated from a methanolic extract of ginger rhizomes using a phase trafficking-based method that utilizes solid phase reagents allowing for fast and selective simultaneous separation of basic, acidic, and neutral components of natural products extracts.
