Acryloylated glucose 3-nitropropanoates from Indigofera kirilowii.

Two unique glucose esters of 3-nitropropanoic acid with acryloyl moieties, kirilowin A and kirilowin B, were isolated from the roots of Indigofera kirilowii. Their structures were elucidated by detailed spectroscopic analysis. The two acrylates constitute new additions to the toxic glucose conjugates of 3-nitropropanoic acid in angiosperms.
