GC-MS ANALYSIS OF ETHYL ACETATE EXTRACT OF ELEUTHERINE BULBOSA (URBAN) MILLER (IRIDACEAE)Abstract
The present study was carried out to detect the phytoconstituents present in the bulbous part of Eleutherine bulbosa using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The mass spectrum of the crude ethyl acetate extract was compared with the available library sources (NIST08LIB, WILEY 8 and FAME). A total of 24 compounds were identified. Most of the major constituents were phenolic in nature. A phenolic compound detected to be present in highest concentration (34.20%) was, 1, 8-Naphthalenediol, 2, 7-diacetyl-3, 6-dimethyl. Carboxylic and sterol compounds were present in minute quantities
