The ethyl acetate fraction of the aerial parts of Oxalis corniculata L. (collected in Ha Tinh province) isolated three compounds (1-3) by chromatographic methods. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including MS and NMR. These compounds were identified as: Eburicoic acid (1); 24-methylenecholest-4-ene-3β, 6β-diol (2); and 3β-hydroxylanosta-8.24-dien-21-oic acid (3). These compounds were, for the first time, isolated from the aerial parts of Oxalis corniculata L.


Oxalis corniculata, eburicoic, 24-methylenecholest-4-ene-3β, 6β-diol, 3β-hydroxylanosta8,24-dien-21-oic.
