In view of its unique medicinal value and other applications, stigmasterol and β-sitosterol were isolated from    Emilia coccinea leaves. Extraction of the compounds from the plant was carried out using Soxhlet apparatus, while column and thin layer chromatographic techniques were used for isolation and purification, which afforded white crystalline powder. Structural elucidation using 1H-NMR, DEPT, COSY, HSQC, and HMBC followed by comparison, with literature values confirmed the isolated compounds as stigmasterol and β-sitosterol. The isolated compounds may contribute to the medicinal properties of E. coccinea. This is the first isolation of stigmasterol and β-sitosterol from E. coccinea.
