Seven known ursane-type saponins were isolated from the methanolic extract of the whole plant of Zygophyllum cornutum Coss, and identified by 2D NMR spectroscopy and FAB-mass spectrometry. They are reported in this species for the first time and might be chemotaxonomically significant for the genus Zygophyllum.
