Isolation of Lupeol from the Stem-bark of Lonchocarpus sericeus (Papilionaceae)

  title={Isolation of Lupeol from the Stem-bark of Lonchocarpus sericeus (Papilionaceae)},
  author={Sadiya M. Abdullahi and Aliyu Muhammad Musa and Musa Ismail Abdullahi and Mihir Sule and Y. M. Sani},
Lupeol, a pentacyclic triterpenoid, was isolated from the chloroform soluble fraction of a methanol extract of the stem-bark of Lonchocarpus sericeus, a plant variously used in ethnomedicine to stimulate appetite, treat constipation, backache and convulsion. Its isolation was carried out by a combination of column chromatography and preparative Thin Layer Chromatography. The structure was determined by analysis of its IR, H NMR, C NMR, and 2D NMR spectral data, as well as comparison with… Expand
