Thespesia populnea (Linn.) Sol. ex Correa (Malvaceae) is commonly known as ‘Portia tree’. Plant is well known for its medicinal importance. In the present study, attempt has been made to characterise the oil isolated from leaves of T. populnea. The pale yellow color oil was isolated from the n- hexane fraction of total methanolic extract of leaves of T. populnea by column chromatography. Isolated oil was characterised by FT-IR, 1H NMR (500 MHz, CDCl3), 13C NMR (125 MHz, CDCl3), and GC-MS analysis. From the structural data and its comparison with reported literature, isolated compound was identified and confirmed as Phytol. This is a first report on isolation of acyclic diterpene alcohol from the Thespesia populnea Linn plant.
