Author(s): M. K Choudhury, E. C Johnson, A. S Agbaji

The methanolic extract of bark of the plant commiphora africana (family: Burseraceae) gave a homogeneous product through chromatographic separation which after crystallization from methanol furnished needles (mp. 142-143°), characterized as dimethylterephthalate (benzene-1, 4-dicarboxylic acid dimethylester), C10H10O4, (M+194) on the basis of spectral analysis (UV, IR, NMR, Mass) and comparison with the synthetic dimethylester prepared from terephthalic acid.
