From the stem bark of Tetrapleura tetraptera, two new oleanane-type saponins, tetrapteroside A 3-O-{6-O-[(2E,6S)-2,6-dimethyl-6-hydroxyocta-2,7- dienoyl]-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 3)-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-[β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)]-β-D-glucopyranosyl}-3,27-dihydroxyoleanolic acid (1), and tetrapteroside B 3-O-[β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-6-O-[(E)-feruloyl]- β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 3)-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-[β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)]-β-D-glucopyranosyl}-3,27- dihydroxyoleanolic acid (2), were isolated. Further extractions from the roots led to the isolation of four known oleanane-type saponins. Their structures were elucidated by the combination of mass spectrometry (MS), one and two-dimensional NMR experiments.
