Solanum procumbens L. is a medicinal plant belonging to the Solanaceae family. In Vietnam, it is known as "Ca gai leo", and it cultivated in some tropical countries in China, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. From the stem of the ethyl acetate extract of Solanum procumbens, we had isolated one anthraquinone (1), four polyphenols (2-5), and one indole (6). By spectroscopic methods as well as comparing with data in the literature, their chemical structures were elucidated as ziganein (1), benzoic acid (2), salicylic acid (3), 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (4), vanillic acid (5), and indole-3-carbaldehyde (6). These compounds were isolated for the first time from the genus Solanum.
