CHARACTERIZATION AND MEDICINAL IMPORTANCE OF PHYTOCONSTITUENTS OF C. PAPAYA FROM DOWN SOUTH INDIAN REGION USING GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY AND MASS SPECTROSCOPY
Keywords:Carica papaya L, Colletotrichum gloeosporiodes, , carpaine and pseudocarpaine
AbstractObjective: To investigate the phytocompounds of the methanolic extract of C. papaya using GC-MS.Â Method: Fresh leaves of Carica papaya were collected, washed thoroughly and shade dried for 8- 10 days. Two hundred grams of crushed fresh young leaves were sequentially extracted in a Soxhlet apparatus using methanol. The chemical compositions of the extract of was investigated using Perkin â€“ Elmer Gas Chromatography â€“ Mass Spectrometry, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) library. Result: Analysis shows different peaks out of which some importantÂ eleven peaks of phytochemical compounds chosen namely Benzyl nitrile, 2- Methoxy-4-vinylphenol, Citronellyl butyrate, N-Aminomorpholine, Methyl-2[methoxy(methyl)amino]-2-methylpropanoate ,Â n Hexadecanoic acid , 4-((1E)-3-Hydroxy-1-propenyl)-2-methoxyphenol, Crotonoyl bromide, 4-Cyclopropylcarbonyloxytetradecane,Â Â 2-Chloro-11H-pyrido[3',2'-4,5]pyrrolo[3,2-c]quinoline and beta sitosterol. Conclusions: From the results it can be concluded that the plant extract shows the presence of 25 important compounds.
