    General phytochemical screening of the aerial parts of Bryophyllum pinnatum (Crassulaceae) revealed the presence of bufadienolides, flavanoids, polyphenols, triterpenoids, phytosterols, glycosides and organic acids. The aim of this study is to identify and characterize the bioactive principle from the aerial parts of the plant. It has wide folk medicinal use. For isolation of the compound, the dried aerial parts powder of Bryophyllum pinnatum was subjected to hot extraction with petroleum ether; this Extract was saponified with alcoholic KOH and subjected to chromatography. The isolation and purification afforded white crystalline powder which was subjected to physical, chemical and spectral identification by IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and GC-MS. The compound was concluded as stigmasterol.
