Cyclogaleginoside D from Astragalus galegiformis stems

The new cycloartane glycoside cyclogaleginoside D, which has the structure 25-O-β-D-glucopyranoside-20S, 25R-epoxycycloartan-3β, 6α, 16β, 25-tetraol 3-O-β-D-(2-O-acetyl)xylopyranoside was isolated from Astragalus galagiformis stems. The structure of the glycoside was established using chemical transformations and IR, PMR, and 13C NMR spectral data.
