Following the characterization of gymnemosides-a and -b, new triterpene glycosides, gymnemosides-c, -d, -e, and -f, were isolated from the leaves of Gymnema (G.) sylvestre R. BR. Their chemical structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence as follows: 21-O-benzoyl-28-O-acetylgymnemagenin 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosiduronic acid (gymnemoside-c), 23-O-[beta-D-xylopyranosyl (1-->6)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl (1-->6)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl] gymnestrogenin (gymnemoside-d… CONTINUE READING
