Interpretive Summary: The attched manuscript describes the isolation and structure elucidation of three new and eight known flavonol glycoside from a native American plant, Gaura biennis. It will be submitted for publication in Heterocycles.

Technical Abstract: Phytochemical investigation of the native American plant Gaura biennis led to the isolation of three new flavonol glycosides (1-3), along with eight known ones. Their structures were established primarily by spectroscopic data as quercetin 3-O-(2"-O-a-L-rhamnopyranosyl-6"-O-E-p-coumaroyl)-ß-D- glucopyranoside (1), kaempferol 3-O-(2"-O-a-L-rhamnopyranosyl-6"-O-E-p-coumaroyl)-ß-D-gluco- pyranoside (2) and quercetin 3-O-(2"-O-a-L-rhamnopyranosyl-6"-O-Z-p-coumaroyl)-ß-D-glucopyrano- side (3). It is noted that SciFinder® has incorrectly assigned the structure of 2 to a compound (CA registry #78510-18-6) whose correct structure is kaempferol 3-O-(2"-O-E-p-coumaroyl-6"-O-a-L-rhamno- pyranosyl-O-E-p-coumaroyl)-ß-D-glucopyranoside.
