Isolation of Compounds from the Aqueous Methanol Extract of Cissus javana DC Leaves and Determination of Its Trace Element Content through Wet Digestion

The aqueous methanol extract of the leaves of Cissus javana DC, which is commonly used in Manipur, India for the breakdown and evacuation of kidney stones, yielded a novel alcohol. Stigmasterol, Stigmasterol glucoside, and other well-known substances Onocer-7-ene 3α,21β-diol, β-amyrin-[olean12(13)-en-3-one] were extracted from the same methanol extract as well. The significance of trace elements in the ethno medicinal properties of the plant is reflected in the trace element content of the plant leaf. The plant leaf was discovered to have unusually high calcium (2960 mg/100 g), magnesium (465 mg/100 g), and iron (520 mg/100 g) levels.
