(Received April 17, 2000; revised May 23, 2000)


The ethanol extract of the leaves of Moringa stenopetala led to the isolation of three glycosides. The compounds were identified as rutin, 4-(4'-O-acetyl--L-rhamnosyloxy)- benzylisothiocyanate and 4-(4'-O-acetyl--L-rhamnosyloxy)-benzaldehyde. The last two compounds are reported for the first time from M. stenopetala. Structure determination was accomplished by means of spectroscopic and chemical studies.
