|Abstract:||The whole plant of Helicanthus elastica growing on mango tress has been subjected for detailed phytochemical investigations. The alcoholic extract has been fractionated into n-hexane, ethyl acetate and n-butanol soluble portions. Composition of n-hexane soluble portion has been analysed using GC-MS and ethyl acetate soluble portion is chromatographed using a column. Isolated compounds have been identified using IR and NMR data. Of 28 compounds eluted by GLC, 9 have been identified by comparison of mass spectrum with that available in GC-MS libraries. Column chromatography yield 7 compounds viz. friedelin, epifriedelinol, β-amyrin, β-sitosterol, ethyl gallate, gallic acid and β-sitosterol-3-O-β-D glucopyranoside. All these compounds are reported for the first time from this plant and they can be used as chemical markers for H. elastica.|
