Phytochemical study was conducted on the leaves of which is a hemi parasitic plant belonging to the family Loranthaceae. Extraction was carried out using cold extraction method with increasing polarity of solvents i.e -hexane, CHCl and MeOH. The components were separated by chromatographic technique and the structures of the compounds were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analyses including MS, FTIR, 1D and 2D NMR, HRMS and chemical methods. Six new pentacyclic triterpenoid esters named as globrauneine A , globrauneine B , globrauneine C , globrauneine D , globrauneine E , and globrauneine F together with six known compounds were successfully isolated from the leaves of growing on . These results depict a substantial support to the chemotaxonomy of the genus .
