GC-MS ANALYSIS OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS FROM ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF WHOLE PLANT OF MOLLUGO OPPOSITIFOLIA L. AND THEIR PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTIVITIESAbstract
Ethanolic extract of the whole plant of Mollugo oppositifolia L. of Molluginaceae has been analyzed by using GC-MS for Bioactive compounds and for their pharmacological activities. GC-MS showed 32 compounds and is confirmed with the help of the database of NIST. Out of these, seven major Bioactive compounds are identified based on their retention time and peak area in GC-MS chromatogram. Among these seven bioactive compounds, Estran-3-one is highest with 33.5%, and dodecanoic acid is lowest with 5.75%. hexadecanoic acid, stigmasterol, estran-3-one, and 8, 11, 14-eicosatrienoic acid are having a higher number of pharmacological activities.
