Abstract

The chloroform extract of Asclepias syriaca stem were investigated. Three triterpenes were isolated by TLC, VLC, and preparative chromatography, and their structures established by one and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. Lupenyl acetate has been isolated for the first time from A. syriaca; this is the first representative of a triterpene bearing a lupane skeleton in this species. In addition, α-amyrin acetate and α-amyrin butyrate were isolated.
