Six compounds (two sterols, three sterol derivatives and one disaccharide) together with eight fatty acids (three saturated and five unsaturated) have been isolated from the seeds of Pongamia pinnata. Their structures were elucidated with the help of physico-chemical methods and spectroscopic techniques. The metabolities, beta-sitosteryl acetate and galactoside, stigma sterol, its galactoside and sucrose are being reported for the first time from this plant. The saturated and unsaturated fatty… CONTINUE READING
