Using a sample of 935 000 BB̄ pairs collected with the CLEO-II detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we have obtained upper limits on the branching ratios for the b→ul-ν̄ processes B-→ωl- ν̄, B-→ρ0l-ν̄, and B̄0→ρ+l-ν̄. The combined result using the relationships among the widths for these three modes is B(B-→ρ0l-ν̄)<(1.6-2.7)×10-4 at 90% C.L., where the range of values is due to model dependence of the detection efficiencies. These measurements yield the limits Vub/Vcb<0.08-0.13.
