A pair of new non-glycosidic iridoid epimers, ningpogenins A and B (1a/1b), together with eighteen known ones (2-19) were isolated from the roots of Scrophularia ningpoensis. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analyses, including 1D-, 2D-NMR, and HR-ESI-MS. Compound 1 is an unusual example of natural ningpogenin—L-pyroglutamic adducts. In addition, the cytotoxic effects of the new compound against HepG2, U251 and SH-SY5Y cell lines were evaluated.
