The 1:1 molecular complex of ivy triterpene glycoside hederasaponin C (HedC) with cholesterol (Chol) was obtained in aqueous isopropyl alcohol. The stability constant of (3.3 ± 0.7)∙106 (mol/L)–1 was calculated for the complex. The complexation was studied by UV- and ATR IR-Fourier spectroscopy, and method of isomolar series. The hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions are formed in the molecular complex.
