Further investigation ofLycium chinense fruits gave a mixture of -O-palmitoyl)- and (6’-O-stearoyl)-β-sitosterol-S-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (1) and two glycolipids, 1-O-(9Z,12Z, I5Z-octa-decatrienoyl)-2-O-(9Z,12Z,15Z-octadecatrienoyl)-3-O-β-D-galactopyranosyl glycerol (2) and 1 -O-(9Z, 12Z-octadecadienoyl)-2-O-(9Z, 12Z, 15Z-octadecatrienoy-3-S-O-β-D-galactopyranosyl glycerol (3). These compounds were newly isolated as constituents ofL. chinense.
