Two novel triterpenoid saponins, Snatzkein C, (3β,20-dihydroxylupan- 28-oic acid 3-O-[β-D-gal-actopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-β-D-glucopyranosyl]-28-O- β-D-glucopyranoside) and SnatzkeinD, (3β,20-dihydroxy-lupan-28-oic acid 3- O-[β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-β-D-glucopyranosyl]-28-O-β-D- glucopyranoside), have been isolated from Arenaria filicaulis. Their structure and conformational behaviour were elucidated by one- and two- dimensional 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
