From the light petroleum extract of the above-ground part of Neopallasia pectinata (PALL.) POLYAKOV paraffins, sesquiterpenic hydrocarbons, a sesquiterpenic diol and a relatively considerable amount of eremophila-9(10),11(13)-dien-12-oic acid were isolated by chromatography. The mixture of plant phytosterols contained β-sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol.
