Six new migrated hopane triterpenoid alcohols, viz. pteron-14-en-7α-ol (1), fern-9(11)-en-3α-ol (2), fern-7-en-3α-ol (3), adian-5(10)-en-3α-ol (4), adian-5-en-3α-ol (5) and fern-9(11)-en-28-ol (6) were isolated along with many other known triterpenoids from fresh fronds of Adiantum capillus-veneris. Their structures were elucidated by detailed two dimensional-NMR analyses and/or chemical correlations.
