ABSTRACT
Phytochemical investigation of methanolic extract of the roots of Ocimum sanctum L. (Lamiaceae) resulted in the isolation of three new phytoconstituents identified as, stigmast-5-en-3b-olyl-n-eicos-9-12-dienoate (3), n-octacos-9-enoic acid (4) and lup-12, 20(29)-dien-28-oic-acid-3b-olyl-octadecanoate (5) along with known compounds of ursolic acid (1) and 3-epibetulinic acid (2). The structures of the isolated compounds were established by spectral data analysis.
