BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS IDENTIFICATION FROM MARINE MACRO ALGAE PADINA AUSTRALIS USING METHANOL EXTRACTAbstract
The investigation was carried out to determine the possible bioactive compounds marine macro algae Padina australis using methanol extract. The GC-MS analysis of methanol extract was performed using perkin Elmer GC clarus. Six compounds were identified from Padina australis showed highest peak area Pentadecanoic acid 14-methyl ester [100%] followed by 1, 2 Benzenedi carboxylic acid, butyl octyl ester [91.5%], Octadecenoic acid, methyl ester [82.3%] 10-Octadecenoic acid, methyl ester [78.6%] and Oleic acid [56.4%]. The compound 9- Octadecenoic acid [Z]; 2-hydroxy-1 [hydroxyl methyl ester] showed the lowest peak area of 34.9%.
