DETERMINATION OF BIOACTIVE PHYTOCOMPONENTS FROM HYDROETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF ANNONA SQUAMOSA (LINN.) LEAF BY GC- MSAbstract
Annona squamosa Linn.commonly called as custard apple, is an edible tropical fruit belongs to the family Annonaceae, is said to show varied medicinal effects, including insecticide, antiovulatory and abortifacient. Hence the present investigation was carried out to determine the phytochemical composition of A. squamosa leaf extract using Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry technique, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. This paper shows the isolation and structural elucidation of the several new natural bioactive compounds from the leaf of A. Squamosa linn in hydroethanolic extract. GC-MS analysis expressed thirty analytes, among that two compounds were showed high peak level such as of 2-Butanone, 3-amino-4-phenyl-(10.21%) and (-)-1,2,3,4-Tetrahydroisoquinoline, 6,7-dimethoxy-2-methyl-1-(6.01%), Hence, the present study focused the leaf extract of Annona squamosa plant possessed promising source of bioactivity as well as justifying the use of this plant to treat many ailments in folk and herbal medicines.
