Four iridal-type triterpenoids, two of which were new. compounds, have been isolated from rhizomes of Iris tectorum Maxim. Their structures were determined by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy and ESI-MS spectrometry. The compounds were identified as the iritectols A and B, and the known iridobelamal A and isoiridogermanal. The presence of epoxide and tetrahydrofuran functions are not common in previously isolated iridal-type triterpenoids. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
