The stem barks of the plant Hymenocardia acida Tul. (Hymenocardiaceae) has yielded five triterpenoids which were identified by spectroscopic methods as friedelan-3-one, betulinic acid, lupeol, β-sitosterol, stigmasterol and the fatty acid, oleic acid. These compounds are being reported for this plant material for the first time. 
Chemical Investigation of the Stem Barks of Aporosa roxburghii
Two compounds were isolated from the dichloromethane crude extract of the stem barks from Aporosa roxburghii. Based on the spectral evidence, their structures were determined to be friedelan-3-one
A New Cytotoxic Tirucallane from the Twigs of Walsura trichostemon
A new tirucallane, trichostemonol, together with five known compounds were isolated from the twigs of Walsura trichOSTemon, and all isolated compounds were evaluated for their cytotoxicity against KB and HeLa cells.

A Novel Normethylfriedelane-Type Isoprenoid from Syzygium guineense Stem Bark
Isolated from the n-hexane soluble fraction of the chloroform extract of Syzygium guineense stem bark were two friedelane-type isoprenoids, friedelan-3-one (1) and a novel derivative
The powdered dried root of Hippocreata welwitschii, a plant known traditionally for its strong anti-epileptic activity was extracted with 95% ethanol to obtain the crude extract. The crude root
Three new triterpenyl esters, codonopilates A–C, isolated from Codonopsis pilosula
Three triterpenyl esters, codonopilates A–C (1–3), were isolated from Codonopsis pilosula, along with fourteen known compounds. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and
Effect of aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark on oestrous cycle of albino rats
It is concluded that the aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark caused an irregular oestrous cycle characterised by prolonged diestrus phase in female albino rats.


Chemical Studies on the Nigerian Medicinal Plant Lonchocarpus cyanescens Benth. Application of Autocorrelated 2D-DQC Spectroscopy to Structure and Carbon-13 Assignments of the Triterpenoid Lupeol
AbstractThe triterpene, lup-20(29)-en-3-ol (lupeol) was isolated from the Nigerian medicinal plant Lonchocarpus cyanescens Benth. The structure elucidation was carried out by using m.p., [α]D,IR, 1H
