Abstract: Analysis of the methanolic extract of seeds of Portulaca oleracea results in the isolation of taraxerane-type triterpenoids, viz., taraxerol 1, acetyl aleuritolic acid 2, portaraxeroic acid A (olean-14-en-3β-yl acetoxy-23-oic acid) 3 and portaraxeroic acid B (olean-14-en-3β-yl acetoxy-30-oic acid) 4. The structures of compounds have been determined on the basis of detailed spectroscopic analysis. The significance of their occurrence in P. oleracea is discussed from the biosynthetic viewpoint.
