The aim of the study was to isolate and structure elucidate compound from extract of Filicium decipiens stem bark, Sapindaceae family. A stigmasta-7,22-dien-3-ol (spinasterol) was isolated from the Filicium decipiens, Sapindaceae family. The fractionation of ethyl acetate stem bark extracts by colomn chromatography led to the isolation of Compound 1 (32 mg). The white powder of Compound 1 had melting point 168.1 – 168.3°C. The structure was established on the basis of UV, IR, NMR spectral data and by comparison with literature data. The isolated compound was concluded as stigmasta-7,22-dien-3-ol (spinasterol).
