An ornamental and medicinal plant Holoptelea integrifolia (Roxb) Planch(Ulmaceae) has been collected from Pakistan. From plant bark, two medicinal pentacyclic triterpenodis,betulinic acid (3β-Hydroxy-lup-20(29)-en-28-oic acid) and betulin (Lup-20(29)-ene-3β, 28-diol) were isolated for the first time from the bark of the plant. The structure of compounds 1 and 2 wereascertained via advanced spectroscopic technique, as these structures were also compared with authenticated structures of betulin and betulinic acid and come across with similar data.
