In present study two chemical constituents viz. Flavon 5,4’ dimethoxy 8 methyl 7-O- ? -D glucopyranoside-5’- ? -D-glucopyranoside and xanthone 3-acetoxy-1-hydroxy-6-methoxy8-O– ? –D-glucopyranosyl-(1 ? 3)- ? –L- rhamnopyranoside from the ethanolic extract of flowers of Bombex ceiba have been isolated and characterized.
