For new triterpenoids, uvaol 3-O-linoleate (1), uvaol 3-O-stearate (2), erythrodiol 3-O-linoleate (3) and erythrodiol 3-O-stearate (4), were isolated from Gentianae Scabrae Radix. Compounds 1 and 2, and an inseparable mixture of the new triterpenoids, α-amyrin 3-O-coriolate (5) and α-amyrin 3-O-dimorphecolate (6), were obtained from Gentianae Radix. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated on the basis of spectral data.
