Chemical investigation of the dichloromethane extract of the freeze-dried roots of Raphanus sativus afforded 3-(E)-(methylthio)methylene-2-pyrrolidinethione (1), a mixture of 4-methylthio-3-butenyl isothiocyanate (2) and 4-(methylthio)butyl isothiocyanate (3), ß-sitosterol (4), ß-sitosteryl-3ß-glucopyranoside-6'-O-palmitate (5), monoacylglycerols (6), and a mixture of a-linolenic acid (7)and linoleic acid (8). The structures of 1-3 were elucidated by extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, while those of 4-8 were identified by comparison of their NMR data with those reported in the literature.
