Oligosaccharides ofSaponaria officinalis

  • V. G. Bukharov
  • S. P. Shcherbak


It has been found that the roots ofSaponaria officinalis L. contain three oligosaccharides.

Two of them have been isolated: gentiobiose and the pentasaccharide saponarose. It has been shown that the latter is O-β-D-galactopyranosyl-(1 → 3)-O-α-D-galactopyranosyl-(1 → 3)-O-α-D-galactopyranosyl-(1 → 3)-O-α-D-galactopyranosyl-(1 → 1)-α-D-glucopyranoside.
