Pawan Kaushik, Sukhbir Lal, A.C. Rana and Dhirender Kaushik

Abstract:
The Chir Pine, Pinus roxburghii, named after William Roxburgh, is a pine native to the Himalaya. Pinus roxburghii Sarg. (Pinaceae) is traditionally used for several medicinal purposes in India. The GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of steroidal moiety 2,2 dibromocholestanone. However presence of intact lactone ring was not revealed, some ester group containing moiety like trimethy ester, 4-ethoxy-ethyl ester, isobutyl octadecyl ester were also observed. Other constituent found to be present are antracene, phthalic acid, 2-chloropropionyl chloride, benzoic acid, boric acid and dibutyl phthalate. The constituent found to be present in Pinus roxburghii are reported to have very significant medicinal property like anticancer, chemopreventive, anthelmintic, antiproliferative. The same activity needs explanation and elucidation in various column fraction and extract of Pinus roxburghii.
