【Abstract】Objective: To study the chemical constituents of Phyllanthus emblica. Methods: The chemical constituents were isolated and purified by silica gel, polyamide and Sephadex LH-20 chromatography. Their structures were elucidated by physicochemical properties and spectral analysis. Results: 13 compounds were isolated and identified as Triacontanol (1), Triacontanoic acid (2), β-Amyrin ketone (3), Betulonic acid (4), Daucosterol (5), Lupeol acetate (6), β-Amyrin-3-palmitate (7), Gallic acid (8), Betulinic acid (9), Ursolic acid (10), Oleanolic acid (11), Quercetin (12) and Rutin (13). Conclusion: Compounds 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11 are obtained from Phyllanthus emblica for the first time.
