Antidesmanol (1), a new pentacyclic triterpenoid, has been isolated along with n-tritriacontane, friedelin, canophyllal and canophyllol from the aerial parts ofAntidesma menasu. Based on chemical and spectroscopic evidence, its structure has been established as 3-keto-16α-hydroxyfriedelane. n-Tritriacontane and friedelin have shown antiinflammatory and diuretic activities respectively in experimental animals.
