IN-VITRO ASSESSMENT, ISOLATION AND SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF THE CHLOROFORM FRACTION OF DIOSPYROS KAKI FRUITAbstract
Persimmon (Diospyros kaki Linn.), which belongs to the Ebenaceae family, have numerous bioactive compounds such as polyphenols, dietary fiber, carotenoids and minerals. This fruit possesses hypolipidemic and antioxidant properties and can be used in anti-atherosclerosis diets. The present paper reveals the phytochemical screening, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory activity and GC-MS Spectral analysis of the isolated fatty acids compounds of the plant Diospyros kaki. From the Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory activity the chloroform fraction of ethanolic extract showed the good activity and proceeded for isolation. Six fatty acid compounds were isolated from the plant Diospyros kaki and analyzed using Gas chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. From the analysis 13 compounds were identified by comparing their retention time and peak area with that of literature and interpretation of mass spectra. The major phytoconstituents were Spiro [(tricyclo [188.8.131.52(2, 7)] dodeca and 1- monolinoleoylglycerol trimethylsilyl ether. Hence this study creates a platform to screen many bioactive components to treat many diseases.
