Abstract

Abstract One monodesmosidic saponin and six bidesmosidic saponins have been isolated from the methanolic extract of the leaves of Swartzia simplex. They were shown to be glucuronides of oleanolic acid, gypsogenin and gypsogenic acid by chemical and spectral means. The monodesmosidic saponins exhibit various molluscicidal activities against the schistosomiasis-transmitting snail Biomphalaria glabrata.
