Bioassay-guided fractionation of an 80% MeOH extract of Juglan sinensis leaves and twigs has resulted in the isolation of three new triterpenes (1-3) and two new sesquiterpenes (4-5) along with two known sesquiterpenes (6-7). The new compounds were determined to be 3β, 11α, 19α, 24, 30-pentahydroxy-20β, 28-epoxy-28β-methoxy-ursane (1), 1α, 3β-dihydroxy-olean-18-ene (2), 2α, 3α, 23-trihydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acid 28-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (3), (4S, 5S, 7R, 8R, 14R)-8, 11-dihydroxy-2, 4-cyclo-eudesmane (4), 15-hydroxy-α-eudesmol-11-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (5), by spectroscopic analysis. The cytotoxicity of compounds (1-7) against four cancer cell lines such as B16F10, Hep-2, MCF-7 and U87-MG was evaluated. Compounds 1, 2, 6 and 7 showed potent cytotoxicity against all of four cancer cell lines, respectively.
