The main constituents of the EtOH extract of leaves of Lagerstroemia speciosa supplied by Traphaco company have been quantitatively determined by HPLC to be corosolic acid (2.242 %), asiatic acid (1.219 %) and β-sitosterol. Repeated column chromatography of the n-hexane, ethyl acetate and dichloromethane extract of these leaves led to the isolation of corosolic acid, asiatic acid, quercetin, β-sitosterol and β-sitosterol-3-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl glucoside. The structures of these compounds have been elucidated by the IR, MS and NMR spectral analysis.
