Five new acylated sucroses, mumeoses K-O, and a new acylated flavonol glycoside, mumeflavonoside A, were isolated from the flower buds of Prunus mume, cultivated in Zhejiang province, China. The chemical structures of the new compounds were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence. The inhibitory effects of the isolated acylated sucroses and flavonol glycosides on aldose reductase were also investigated. Several flavonol glycosides including mumeflavonoside A were shown to inhibit aldose reductase.
