Two triterpene saponins acylated with monoterpenoid were isolated from the stem barks of Albizia julibrissin. Their structures were identified as 3-O--D-xylopyranosyl-(1→2)--L-arabinopyranosyl- (1→6)-6--D-glucopyrano-syl-21-O-[(6S)-2-trans-2-hydroxymethyl-6-methyl-6-O-D-quinovopyranosyl- 2,7-octadienoyl]-acacic acid-28-O--D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-[α-2-arabinofuranosyl-(1→4)-α-L-rhomno- pyranosyl-(1→2)--D-glucopyranosylester (1) and 3-O--D-xylopyranosyl-(1→2)--L- arabinopyranosyl- (1→6)--D-2-deoxy-2-acetamidoglucopyranosyl-21-O-[(6S)-2-trans-2-hydroxymethyl-6-methyl-6-O--D- quinovopyranosyl-2,7-octadienoyl]-acacic acid-28-O--D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)--L-arabinofuranosyl- (1→4)--L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)--D-glucopyranosyl ester (2) based on chemical and spectroscopic methods, respectively, named as Julibrosides J25 and J22. Julibrosides J25 and J22 showed marked activities against four kinds of cancer cell lines in a concentration of 100 g/mL assayed by SRB method.
