Bioactive Compound Evaluation of Ethanol Extract from Geodorum densiflorum (Lam.) Schltr. by GC-MS analysis

Keerthiga Manohar, Anand S. P


The phytochemical constituents are responsible for medicinal value of the plant species. The present investigation was carried out to analyze the bioactive components from the whole plant of Geodorum densiflorum (Lam.) Schltr using GC-MS technique. The chemical compositions of the ethanolic extract of G. densiflorum were investigated using Perkin - Elmer Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry and about twenty one bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified. The prevailing compounds where Hexadecanoic acid, Ethyl ester (38.884 %), Ionone (7.125 %), 3-Deoxy-d-mannoic lactone (7.4441 %), 2,3-Butanediol (4.725 %) and 2-Piperidinone, N-[4-bromo-n-butyl]- (4.004 %), (E)-9-Octadeconoic acid ethyl ester (3.891 %), 1H-Pyrrole-2-Carbonitrile (3.778 %), Pyridinium, 1-amino-, chloride (3.305 %), 4H- Pyran-4-one, 3,5-dihydroxy-2-methyl- (3.274) and having various biological activities. This was the first report on the identification of bioactive compounds from ethanol extract of G. densiflorum.
