To demonstrate the chemical constituents of the fruits of Gardenia sootepensis.
Column chromatographic technology was employed to separate the water soluble part, and the compounds obtained were elucidated by spectral and chemical analysis.
Ten compounds have been isolated, seven of which elucidated respectively as D-mannitol, beta-sitosterol, deacetylasperulosidic acid methyl ester, geniposidic acid, geniposide, scandoside methyl ester and dimeric molecule of quinide.
All the compounds were obtained from this plant for the first time.
