From stem bark of Syzygium aqueum, oleanolic acid, and b-sitosterol were isolated successfully. Their structure was identified using spectroscopic methods such as UV-Visible, Fourier Transform Infrared and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. The isolated compounds were then tested for their anticancer activity against cervical, and breast cancer cell lines using the MTT method. The presence of these two compounds isolated from the stem bark of S. aqueum is the first to be reported.
