<abstract language="eng">The hexane extract of leaves of B. microphylla afforded a mixture of triterpenes esterified with fatty acids. Analyses of spectral data of the mixture and of the derivatives obtained by a transesterification reaction with NaOMe/MeOH permitted to identify the composition of the mixtures as being 24-hydroxy-urs-12-enyl 3b-eicosanate, estearate and palmitate as well as of the 24-hydroxy-olean-12-enyl 3b-eicosanate, estearate and palmitate. From the choroform and ethyl acetate extracts were isolated the oleanolic and 3b,24-dihydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acids, quercetin and methyl galic ester, respectively. The compounds were identified through analysis of their spectral data
