Abstract

From the stems and fruits ofOpuntia ficus-indica var.saboten, eight flavonoids, kaempferol (1), quercetin (2), kaempferol 3-methyl ether (3), quercetin 3-methyl ether (4), narcissin (5), (+)-dihydrokaempferol (aromadendrin,6), (+)-dihydroquercetin (taxifolin,7), eriodictyol (8), and two terpenoids, (6S,9S)-3-oxo-α-ionol-|β-D-glucopyranoside (9) and corchoionoside C (10) were isolated and identified by means of chemical and spectroscopic. Among these isolates, compounds3–5 and8–10 were reported for the first time from the stems and fruits of O.ficusindica var.saboten.
