A new limonoid, azedarachin B, with a C-19/C-29 bridged acyl acetal structure was isolated as an insect antifeedant from the root bark of Melia toosendan along with seven known limonoids. The structure of azedarachin B was elucidated by spectroscopic and chemical means and the antifeedant property was also studied.
