A new galloyl glycoside from <i>Lotus corniculatus</i>

<p>A new galloyl glucoside, 2,6-di-<i>O</i>-acetyl 1-<i>O</i>-galloyl <i>β</i>-D-glucose (<b>1</b>), along with five known phenolic compounds were isolated from the whole plants of <i>Lotus corniculatus</i>. Their structures were elucidated by means of extensive spectroscopic analysis. Compound <b>1</b> was assessed for its cytotoxicity against five human tumour lines (HL-60, SMMC-7721, A-549, MCF-7 and SW-480), and the result showed that it had no activity.</p>
