An ellagitannin monomer, nilotinin M1 (1), and three dimers, nilotinins D1 (2), D2 (3), and D3 (4), were isolated from leaves of Tamarix nilotica (Ehrenb.) Bunge. Structures were elucidated based on analysis of spectroscopic data and chemical correlations with known compounds. In addition, six known tannins, hirtellin A (5) (dimer), remurin A (6), remurin B (7), 1,3-di-O-galloyl-4,6-O-(S)-hexahydroxydiphenoyl-β-d-glucose (8), gemin D (9), and hippomanin A (10) (monomers), were isolated for the first time from this plant species. The reported 13C NMR assignments of the dehydrodigalloyl moiety and glucose cores of 5 are revised, and the 13C NMR spectroscopic data for 6 and 7 are also reported for the first time.
