Author(s): Venkata Sai Prakash Chaturvedula and Indra Prakash
Abstract: Purification of the n-BuOH fraction of the aqueous alcoholic extract from the roots of Phytolacca americana resulted in the isolation of two triterpene saponins named esculentoside B (1), and esculentoside A (2). The structures of isolated compounds were characterized on the basis of extensive spectral data (1D and 2D NMR; and MS) and in comparison with their Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Mass (MS) spectral data reported earlier.
