  1. 1.

    The structure was established of gypsoside, the gypsogenin glycoside isolated from the roots ofGypsophila pacifica.

  2. 2.

    Arguments are advanced in favor of the existence of gypsoside in two forms-in the form of the acid and of the hemiacylal resulting from interaction between the carboxy group of the glucuronic acid residue and the aldehyde group of gypsogenin.
