Yenesew A., Dagne E. "Anthraquinones and the chemotaxonomy of the Asphodelaceae." Pure & Appl. Chem. . 1994;66: 2395-2398.


Phytochemical investigations on three genera of the Asphodelaceae, Aloe, KniphoJla and Bulbine showed that 1-methyl-8-hydroxyanthraquinones and anthrone-C-glycosides are characteristic constituents of the genus Aloe, while knipholone-type compounds distinguish fiiphoja and Bulbine.
