Two new oleanene glycosides (1-2) possessing hederagenin as the aglycone were isolated from the methanolic extract of the aerial parts of Caltha polypetala together with four known glycosides. The saccharide portion linked to C-3 of the aglycone is made up of alpha-L-arabinopyranose, alpha-L-rhamnopyranose and galactopyranose in the new compounds; while compound 1 possesses linked to C-28 a trisaccharide moiety made up of two beta-D-glucopyranose and one alpha-L-rhamnopyranose unit, in compound 2 the 28-COOH group is free. The structures were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR experiments including H-1-H-1 (DQF-COSY, 1D-TOCSY, 2D-ROESY) and H-1-C-13 (HSQC, HMBC) spectroscopy. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
