Seven new compounds, O-trans-cinnamoylglutinol (1), 22β-hydroxy-12- oleanen-3-one (2), 15α,16α-epoxy-12-oleanen-3-one (3), 29-hydroxy-12-oleanene-3,22-dione (4), 22β,29-dihyroxy-12-oleanen-3-one (5), 2,3-(methylenedioxy)-4-methoxy-5-methylphenol (8), and 2,3,6-trimethoxy-5- methylphenol (9), as well as two first isolated from natural sources, 25-cycloartene-3,24-dione (6) and 24ξ-hydroxy-25-cycloarten-3-one (7), were characterized from Derris laxiflora. The structures of these compounds were determined by analysis of their spectroscopic data.
