Siva Kumar Ramamurthy and Chenchugari Sridhar
Parthenium hysterophorous plant of Asteraceae family has chemical constituents such as alkaloids, proteins, saponins, tannins, carbohydrates, glycosides, terpenoids, steroids, volatile oils, amino acids, flavonoids. In this study, Stigmasterol, a well-known phytosterol was isolated from Parthenium hysterophorous plant and purified by fractional distillation and column chromatography using n-hexane as extracting solvent and reported first time. Isolated compound (Stigmasterol) was characterized by spectral techniques IR, MS, 1H NMR, 13 C NMR studies and determined the structure.
