The triterpene acetylaleuritolic acid was isolated from Jatropha macrorhiza (Euphorbiaceae) and showed tumor‐inhibitory properties toward the P‐388 lymphocytic leukemia test system. The compound was identified by means of IR, PMR, and mass spectrometry and by its transformation into the known methyl acetyloleanolate.
