A new glycoside with a rotenoid aglycone — amorphol — has been isolated from the fruit ofAmorpha fruticosa L. It has been established that amorphol is a bioside of amorphigenin and has the structure of the 24-O-[O-α-L-arabopyranosyl-(1→6)-β-D-glucopyranoside] of 22,24-dihydroxy-22,23-dihydrorotenone.
