Two new eudesmane-type glucopyranosides from the fruits of <i>Daucus carota</i> L.

<div><p>Two new eudesmane-type glucopyranosides have been isolated from the fruits of <i>Daucus carota</i> L. On the basis of their spectroscopic and chemical evidence, the new compounds were elucidated as daucucarotol-10-<i>O</i>-β-d-glucopyranoside (<b>1</b>) and decahydro-7-[(2-<i>O</i>-β-d-glucopyranosyl)-isopropyl]-1β,4aα-dimethyl-(1α,4α,8aβ)-naphthalenetriol (<b>2</b>). Compounds <b>1</b> and <b>2</b> showed moderate antitumour activity against human ECA-109 and gave IC<sub>50</sub> values of 23.22 and 26.76 μM, respectively.</p></div>
