PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND GC MS ANALYSIS OF CHLOROFORM EXTRACT OF KANDELIA CANDEL (L.) DRUCEAbstract
The aim of the present study is to screen the phytochemicals present in the leaf extract of Kandelia candel and further analysis of the bioactive components present in it by Gas chromatography – Mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. Carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, Saponins, flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosides, tannins, alkaloids, and phenols were present in the sample. The percentage yield of plant extract is high in ethanol extract and is 7.02%. GC-MS analysis of chloroform extract of K.candel leaf extract revealed the presence of 16 compounds and Longipinene epoxide(peak area 25.12) and 2-C14H26 (peak area 25.12)were the major compounds. The compounds were identified by comparing their retention time, peak area and by interpretation of mass spectra and matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library.
