Glycosides of cinnamyl alcohol from the rhizomes ofRhodiola rosea


Three new cinnamyl alcohol glycosides have been isolated for the first time from the rhizomes of roseroot stonecropRhodiola rosea L. (Sedum rosea). On the basis of chemical transformations and the results of UV, IR, PMR, and mass spectroscopy the following structures are proposed for the compounds isolated: rozin — trans-cinnamyl O-β-D-glucopyranoside; rozavin — transcinnamyl O-(6′-O-α-L-arabinopyranosyl-β-D-glucopyranoside); and rozarin — trans-cinnamyl O-(6′-O-α-L-arabinofuranosyl-β-glucopyranoside).
