The air-dried leaves of Tectona philippinensis, an endemic and endangered Philippine medicinal plant, afforded 5-hydroxy-3,7,4'-trimethoxyflavone (1), 5,4'-dihydroxy-3,7-dimethoxyflavone (2), squalene (3), a mixture of lupeol (4a) and B-amyrin (4b), chlorophyllide a (5), and hydrocarbons. Antimicrobial tests on 1 and 2 indicated low antifungal activity against the fungi, Candida albicans and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. Compound 1 was also found to have low antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
