Abstract: A new triterpenoid saponin was isolated from Pulsatilla cernua, along with eight known triterpenoids and triterpenoid glycosides. The new compound was identified as 3-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-α-L-arabinopyranosyl-bayogenin-28-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→4)-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-β-D-glucopyranosyl ester (1) on the basis of 1D, 2D-NMR techniques, including COSY, HMBC, and HMQC correlations, MS analysis, as well as chemical methods.
Keywords: ranunculaceae; Pulsatilla cernua; triterpenoid saponin
