GC-MS ANALYSIS OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS IN BRYONOPSIS LACINIOSA FRUIT EXTRACTAbstract
The bioactive components of Bryonopsis laciniosa fruits have been evaluated using GC/MS. The chemical compositions of the methanolic extract of Bryonopsis laciniosa fruits were investigated using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography –Mass Spectrometry, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. The GC-MS analysis shows that the most prevailing compounds were identified as Oleic Acid, Hexanoic acid, 2-Ethylcyclohexanone, 2-Methyltetracosane, 2-Undecenal, 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, Ascorbic acid 2,6-dihexadecanoate, Octadecanoic acid, (2E)-2-Decenal.The compounds like Sulfurous acid, n-Nonaldehyde, 2-Hepten-3-ol, Decadienal, 3-Octenoic acid, 1-[2-(acetyloxy)ethyl]-3-oxooctyl acetate $$ acetic acid 3-acetoxy-5-oxo-decyl ester, 9-Octadecenoic acid, 2H-Pyran-2-one, Z,Z-4,15-Octadecadien-1-ol acetate were moderately present. The results confirm the presence of bioactive components which are known to exhibit medicinal value as well as pharmacological activities.
