Abstract


An ester derivative of 4-methoxycynnamic acid, i.e. 2-ethylhexyl 4-methoxy cynnamate was isolated for the first time from the chloroform extract of stem bark of Xylocarpus moluccencis (Lamk) M. Roem) (Meliaceae) along with β-sitosterol and stigmasterol. The first structure was elucidated with the help of various spectroscopic techniques, including IR, GC-MS, and NMR spectra. Two last structures were determined by comparison with the reported compounds in literature. These compounds were also found in the hexane extract of the plant.

Keywords


Ester of 4-methoxycynnamic acid; β-sitosterol; stigmasterol; Xylocarpus moluccencis
