GC-MS ANALYSIS OF CHLOROFORM EXTRACT OF CLEOME BURMANNI W. AND A. (CLEOMACEAE)Abstract
The present study was carried out to determine the presence of phytocomponents in the aerial parts of Cleome burmanni using Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The mass spectrum of the crude chloroform extract was compared with the available library sources (NIST08 LIB, WILEY8 LIB). Sixteen components were identified. Sterols, terpenoids and hydrocarbons were the most prominent. The major components detected were 24(s)- Ethyl-3- alpha, 5-alpha-cyclocholest-22 (E)-en-6-one (19.29%), Delta-4-Sitosterol-3-one (14.75%), Cholest-4-en-3-one (12.35%), Stigmasta-5, 23-Dien-3-ol, (3-beta) (12.17%), Neophytadiene (6.83%), Hexatriacontane (6.22%), 1-alanine, N-(3-fluorobenzoyl) – undec-10-enyl ester (5.96%), phytol (5.67%), tetracontane (4.30%), 1,2- benzenedicarboxylic acid (3.25%). The other components were present in minute quantities.
