New phenylethanoid glycosides from Bacopa monniera.
Three new phenylethanoid glycosides, viz. monnierasides I-III (1-3) along with the known analogue plantainoside B were isolated from the glycosidic fraction of Bacopa monniera. Their structures were elucidated mainly on the basis of two dimensional (2D) NMR spectral analyses. (+info)
Bacopasides III-V: three new triterpenoid glycosides from Bacopa monniera.
Three new saponins, designated as bacopasides III, IV and V have been isolated from Bacopa monniera WETTST. and their structures have been elucidated as 3-O-alpha-L-arabinofuranosyl (1-->2)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl jujubogenin (1), 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl (1-->3)-alpha-L-arabinopyranosyl jujubogenin (2) and 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl (1-->3)-alpha-L-arabinopyranosyl pseudojujubogenin (3) mainly on the basis of two dimensional (2D) NMR and other spectral analyses.

Bacosterol glycoside, a new 13,14-seco-steroid glycoside from Bacopa monnieri.
A new sterol glycoside, bacosterol-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside along with bacopasaponin-C, bacopaside-I, bacopaside-II, bacosterol, bacosine and luteolin-7-O-beta-glucopyranoside have been isolated from Bacopa monnieri. Their structures were elucidated mainly on the basis of IR, 1D, 2D NMR (HMQC, HMBC, COSY), HR-ESI-QTOF-MS and EI mass spectral studies. (+info)
Estimation of twelve bacopa saponins in Bacopa monnieri extracts and formulations by high-performance liquid chromatography.
A simple and sensitive reversed phase high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of twelve bacopa saponins present in the extracts of the Indian Medicinal Plant, Bacopa monnieri. The separation was achieved on a reversed phase C(18) column (Luna C(18)), 5 microm by isocratic elution with 0.05 M sodium sulphate buffer (pH 2.3) and acetonitrile (68.5 : 31.5, v/v) as the mobile phase at a flow rate of 1.0 ml/min with an operating temperature of 30 degrees C. The method was validated for linearity, precision, intra- and inter-day precision and accuracy. Several Bacopa samples (plant materials, extracts and commercial formulations) were successfully analyzed. Major bacopasaponins were bacosides A(3) (3), bacopaside II (4), bacopaside I (5), bacopaside X (6), bacopasaponin C (7), bacopaside N2 (9) and the minor components were bacopasaponin F (1), bacopasaponin E (2), bacopaside N1 (8) bacopaside III (10), bacopaside IV (11) and bacopaside V (12). The total saponin content in the samples, plant materials and extracts varied from 5.1 to 22.17% and 1.47 to 66.03 mg/capsule or tablet in the commercial formulations. (+info)
