Two new tetranortriterpenoid γ-hydroxybutenolides named as isonimolide and isolimbolide along with isonimocinolide, have been isolated from the acidic fraction of the fresh, undried, spring twigs of Azadirachta indica (neem). The structures of these limonoids have been established through chemical and spectral studies.
