Sesbania grandiflora (L.) Pers (Leguminosae) is a small erect and sparsely branched tree. It is a member of the subfamily Faboideae and tribe Robinieae. The Malay names of this plant are turi and geti. This plant is native to tropical Asia and is widespread in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and India. The root, bark, leaves, flowers, and fruits of the plant are used to treat various diseases in folkloric medicines. A variety of compounds such as sterols, saponins and tannins exhibits many interesting effects such as hypotensive, oedema, and diuretic. Due to the above mentioned biological activities, root of the Sesbania grandiflora was selected for phytochemical investigation. Three isoflavonoids, 3-hydroxy-9-methoxypterocarpan, 7,4’-dihydroxy-2’methoxyisoflavan , and 7-hydroxy-2’,4’-dimethoxyisoflavan, were isolated from the root of S.grandiflora. This is the first report on the occurrence of isoflavonoids in this plant. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data and by comparison with the known compounds.
