Three new nimbolinin-type limonoids, named nimbolinins A, C and D, were isolated together with five known limonoids, trichilinin D and E, nimbolinin B, 1-O-cinnamoyltrichilinin and toosendanin, from the unripe fruits of a Chinese Meliaceae plant Melia toosendan. The structures of these new compounds were elucidated by spectrospcopic means and their antifeedant property is also described.
