Abstract: Three novel multiflorane-type triterpenoids, 3a-p-nitrobenzoylmultiflora-7:9(11)-diene-29-benzoate (1), 3a-acetoxymultiflora-7:9(11)-diene-29-benzoate (2), and 3a-acetoxymultiflora-5(6):7:9(11)-triene-29-benzoate (3), along with two known related compounds 4 and 5 were isolated from the seeds of zucchini (Cucurbita pepo L). Their structures were determined on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy and HREIMS. Triterpenoids possessing a nitro group were not isolated previously.
Keywords: Cucurbita pepo L; zucchini; 3a-p-nitrobenzoylmultiflora-7:9(11)-dien-29-benzoate; 3a-acetoxymultiflora-7:9(11)-diene-29-benzoate; 3a-acetoxymultiflora-5(6):7:9 (11)-triene-29-benzoate
