A. polystachya well known source of limonoids and terpenoids with the wide range of biological activity. A.polystachya have led to the isolation of many structurally active constituents like terpenoids and limuloids with a pharmacological properties such as anti-feed ant, insecticidal and antioxidant activities. In our present study Photochemical investigation of fruits of hexane extract of Aphanamixispolystachya led to isolation of active constituents. The resulted active constituents were determined on the basis of HRMS, IR, 1D and 2D NMR data.
