Abstract

Twenty-three known chemical compounds were identified in the leaves of Leea indica (Burm. f.) Merr. (Leeaceae) by GC-MS analysis, spectroscopic techniques and co-TLC with authentic samples. The identified compounds include eleven hydrocarbons, phthalic acid, palmitic acid, 1-eicosanol, solanesol, farnesol, three phthalic acid esters, gallic acid, lupeol, beta-sitosterol and ursolic acid. Gallic acid was isolated as n-butyl gallate and identified by co-TLC. This seems to be the first report of the presence of gallic acid in the leaves of L. indica.
