Corilagin is an ellagitannin. Corilagin was first isolated in 1951 from Dividivi extract and from Caesalpinia coriaria,[1][2] hence the name of the molecule, it can also be found in Alchornea glandulosa and in the leaves of Punica granatum (pomegranate).[3]

It is a weak carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.[4]
