Cucurbitane derivative has been isolated from methanol extract of the leaves of bitter melon (Momordica charantia). Purification of methanol extract using vacuum column chromatography method using n-hexane: ethyl acetate as the mobile phase was obtained a white powder isolate. This isolate was elucidated to obtain chemical structures based on spectroscopic data (FT-NMR, FT-IR, and LC-MS/MS) and resulted a cucurbitane derivate, namely momordicine I. The MeOH extract and the isolate were
