Main Article Content


In this study, six compounds isolated from the n-hexane fraction of Canna edulis Ker Gawl rhizomes for the first time include 24-methylenecycloartane-3β-ol, sitoindoside I, citrulloside, 16β-hydro-19-al-ent-kauran-17-oic acid, daucosterol, and β-sitosterol. Spectroscopic methods as MS and NMR were used to elucidate their structures.
