Abstract

Author(s): Faleye, F J

Plants are stouted as nutritionally useful foods which supposedly prevent cancers and provide other health benefits. Two steroids, Taraxasterol and Stigmasterol were isolated from the methanolic extract of the seeds of Dioclea reflexa. The structure elucidation of the compounds was performed by spectroscopic analysis and comparison with published data from literature.
