Abstract: Ziziphus oenoplia Linn., Mill, (Rhamnaceae) known as jackal jujube is a deciduous or evergreen thornytrees, shrubs or rarely herbs. It’s root is traditionally used as astringent, bitters, anthelmintic, digestive, antiseptic and for hyperacidity, ascaris infection, stomachalgia and healing of wounds. The root bark of Ziziphus oenoplia on extraction with chloroform solvent resulted in the identification of three new compounds. The structure of one of the compound was elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and stereochemical assignments with reference to other related compounds of known stereochemistry.
