Abstract

Indian traditional medicinal plant Bauhinia variegata were extracted with ethanol and fractionated successively with petroleum ether (60 – 80°C), chloroform, n-butanol and methanol. The preliminary phytochemical studies of ethanolic extract of plant material showed the presence of carbohydrate, protein, glycosides, triterpenoids, saponins and steroids. The detailed phytochemical investigation of petroleum ether fraction of ethanolic extract of this plant isolated three triterpenoids and a fatty acid ester of triterpenoid, which were identified by spectroscopical analysis as α- amyrin caprylate, Lupeol, nor-α-amyrin and 3β, 28-di hydroxyl olean-12-enyl-palmitate, respectively.
