The leaves of common ivy have yielded 11 triterpene glycosides: the 3-O-α-L-pyranosides of oleanolic acid (1), of echinocystic acid (2), and of hederagenin; the 3-O-[O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-L-arabinopyranoside]s of oleanolic acid (4), of echinocystic acid (5), and of hederagenin (6); the O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→4)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl ester of hederagenin 3-O-α-L-pyranoside (7); the O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl ester of hederagenin 3-O-[O-α-L-pyranosyl-(1→2)-α-L-arabinopyranoside] (9); and the O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→4)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl esters of oleanolic acid, echinocystic acid, and hederagenin 3-O-[O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)-β-D-glucopyranoside]s (8), (10), and (11), respectively. This is the first time that compounds (1), (2), (5), (7), (9), and (10) have been found in this plant.
