    Objective: Xanthium strumarium Linn. belonging to the family compositae, commonly known as ‘burweed’ and chotagokhru in hindi contains a number of phytoconstituents such as alkaloids, phytosterols, glycosides, bioflavonoids, phenols, terpenoids and sugar. The objective of the present study was to isolate and characterize phytoconstituents from the petroleum ether extract of leaves of Xanthium strumarium Linn. Methods: Petroleum ether extract was saponified with alcoholic KOH and then subjected to column chromatography and eluted with different solvents of increasing polarity, composed of hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate to isolate the constituents. Isolated compounds were purified by PTLC, CC and recrystallization method. The structure of the isolated compounds was established on the basis of spectroscopic evidences (IR, UV, 1HNMR, 13CNMR, MS). Results: Phytosterol such as stigmasterol, β-sitosterol and two long chain alcohols pentatriacontan-1-ol and tritriacontanol isolated from the petroleum ether extract of leaves of the plant. Conclusions: Xanthium strumarium contains stigmasterol, β-sitosterol, pentatriacontan-1-ol and tritriacontanol which are responsible for various pharmacological activities of the plant.
