In this study the alkaloid content of Malaysian Leuconotis eugenifolius has been carried out. From the bark of L. eugenifolius, two indole alkaloids were isolated and identified as leuconolam and E-akuammidine. The crude extract also showed positive anti-plasmodial activity. The isolation of the alkaloids is achieved by chromatographic techniques and the structural elucidations were performed via spectral methods; namely NMR, MS, IR and UV.
