Abstract

One new cucurbitane triterpenoid commonly named neokuguaglucoside, together with three known compounds momordicoside M, momordicoside N, and momordicoside A were isolated from the fresh fruits of Momordica charantia. The new one's structure with an interesting sugar-like groups attached to the side chain was elucidated by spectroscopic analysis and semiepirical (AM1) quantum chemical method.
