Myxopyrum smilacifolium, iridoid glycoside, phenylethanoid glycoside


 From the roots of Myxopyrum smilacifolium Blume, five known compounds, verbascoside (1), arenarioside (2), myxopyroside (3), 3-formylindole (4), and 5-hydroxymethyl furfural (5) were isolated. Their chemical structures were determined by  ESI-MS, 1D, 2D-NMR spectrascopic data analysis as well as in comparison with those reported in the literatures.
