Abstract: Two new furostanol saponins 12 and three new sulphated glycosides 3a,b and 4 were isolated from the underground parts of Ruscus aculeatus L., along with four known furostanol and one spirostanol saponins 59 and three free sterols. All of the structures have been elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data 1D and 2D NMR experiments, MS spectra and GC analyses.
Keywords: Ruscaceae; Ruscus aculeatus L.; furostanol saponins; sulphated steroidal glycosides; NMR spectroscopy
