Author(s): Consolacion Y. Ragasa, Virgilio D. Ebajo Jr, Mariquit M. De Los Reyes and Chien-Chang Shen

Chemical investigations of the dichloromethane extracts of the leaves of Eucalyptus deglupta (Blume) led to the isolation of nerolidol (1), ursolic acid (2), oleanolic acid (3), and squalene (4), while the twigs yielded 2-4. The structures of 1-4 were identified by comparison of their 1H and/or 13C NMR data with those reported in the literature.
