GC-MS ANALYSIS OF BIO-ACTIVE COMPOUNDS FROM THE ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF BALIOSPERMUM MONTANUM (WILD.) MUELL. ARG.
- Baliospermum montanum, euphorbiaceae, ethanol extract, Phytocompounds
Baliospermum montanum (Wild.) Muell. Arg., (Euphorbiaceae) is a well known medicinal plant which is used in treatment of various diseases. The present study was focussed on the separation and investigation of the phytochemical compounds from ethanolic extract by GC-MS technique. The mass spectra of the
compounds found in the extract were matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. The ethanolic extract revealed the presence of 30 bioactive compounds. The major and minor phytochemical compounds are 2,15-Dithia(9,10)anthracenol(2,6)pyridinophane,1,2,3,4-tetrahydro showed the highest peak 9.32% followed by phytol-9.08%, Neophytadiene-7.38%, 8,11-Octadecadienoic acid, methyl ester (CAS)-7.06%, 4-ethyl-6-[2-(methoxycarb onyl)ethenyl]-7-[2-(methoxycarbonyl)ethyl]1,3,5,8-tetramethyl-2-vinylporphyrin-6.72%, 2-pentafluorophenylpropanal-6.43%,4,4'-Isopropylidene-bis-(2-cyclo hexyl phenol)-5.91% etc.. Further pharmacological studies are needed to find out the medicinal aspect of these compounds.
