[Objective] To research the chemical components in FRUCTUS GARDENIAE. [Methods] Silica column chromatography over silica gel, K.P-18 reverse phase silica gel and Sephadex LH-20, as well as recrystallization were adopted. Structures of compounds were identified by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, ESI-MS, EI-MS and comparison with the data of literatures. [Results] A total of seven chemical compounds were isolated and purified from the ethanol extracts of FRUCTUS GARDENIAE, which were geniposide (1), 6α-hydroxygeniposide (2), genipingentiobioside (3), adian-5-en-3α-ol (4), (23Z)-cycloart-23-en-3β, 25-diol (5), 7α-hydroxy sitosterol (6) and 5,8-epidioxystigmasta-6, 22-dien-3-ol (7). [Conclusions] Compounds 4, 5, 6 and 7 were isolated from FRUCTUS GARDENIAE for the first time.
