A phytochemical study of the ethanolic extract of Chrysosplenium carnosum Hook. f. et Thoms. led to the isolation of two new oleanane-type triterpenoids, 6β-hydroxy-3-oxoolean-12-en-27-oic acid (1) and 3β, 21α-dihydroxyolean-12-en-27-oic acid (2), along with fourteen known compounds (3-16), all of which were isolated from this plant for the first time. The structures of these compounds were established on the basis of spectroscopic methods. Compounds 1-4 were evaluated for their in vitro anti-tumor activities on B16F10, SP2/0 and Hep-G2 cells lines. Compounds 1, 3 and 4 exhibited strong inhibitory activity against B16F10 and SP2/0 cells' growth, compared with moderate cytotoxic activity against Hep-G2 cells. However, compound 2 showed to be inactive against these tumor cells.
