Jamal A Nasser


A chemical study was done on the leaves of Melissa officinalis. The separations of the chemical components were carried out by different chromatographic techniques and their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic method including nuclear magnetic resonance as well as gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Three compounds were isolated and identified as friedoolean-7-one , stigmasterol and betulinic acid.
