Abstract: Three novel compounds, one steroid and the other two aliphatic esters, have been isolated from the seeds of Nigella sativa and identified as ergosta-5,24 (28)-dien-2,3-cis-diol 1, pentyl undecanoate 2, methyloctadeca-14,16-dienoate 3, on the basis of spectral and chemical analysis. The compound 2 exhibits significant activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Shigella spp, while moderate activity against Escherichia coli has been recorded. Rest of the compounds show poor activity against all the tested bacteria.
