Abstract: A novel cyanogenic glycoside, 2-((6-O-(β-D-apiofuranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranosyloxy)-2-methylbutanenitrile, 1, three novel non-cyanogenic glycosides, (2S)-((6-O-(β-D-apiofuranosyl)-β-D-gluco¬pyrano¬syloxy) butane, 2; 2-((6-O-(β-D-apiofuranosyl)-β-D-gluco¬pyranosyloxy) propane, 3, ethyl β-D-glucopyranoside, 4, two known cyanogenic glycosides, (R)-2-(β-D-Glucopyranosyloxy)-2-methyl butanenitrile (lotaustralin), 5, 2-(β-D-Gluco¬pyrano¬syloxy)-2-methylpropane nitrile (linamarin), 6 have been isolated from ethanolic extract of the fresh rootcortex of Manihot esculenta. Lotaustralin and linamarin and two flavonoid glycosides, kaempferol-3-O-rutinoside, 7 and quercetin-3-O-rutinoside, 8 have been isolated from the methanol extract of the fresh leaves of the same plant.
