Abstract

Objective: The investigation was carried out to characterize the chemical constituents present in the methanolic extracts of leaves of Actinodaphne bourdillonii Gamble using GC-MS.


Methods: The chemical constituents of methanolic extract of A. bourdillonii were studied by using Perkin Elmer Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectroscopy.


Results: The GC-MS analysis of the methanolic extract revealed the presence of 18 compounds. The major chemical constituents are Tobacco compounds- 4,8,13-Cyclotetradecatriene-1,3-diol, 1,5,9-trimethyl-12-(1-methylethyl)- (33.47%), Terpene alcohol compounds - 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol (10.78%), Myirstic acid - Tetradecanoic acid (9.89%) and Sugar moiety compounds -1,6-Anhydro-2,4-dideoxy-á-D-ribo-hexopyranose (7.93%). The analysis of bioactive principles of methanolic extract of leaves of A. bourdillonii has not been reported previously.


Conclusion: A. bourdillonii is a valuable tree with numerous medicinal properties which contains various bioactive principles. Such studies will be very much help full in designing a new drugs for the therapeutic values.

Keywords: Actinodaphne bourdillonii, Terpene alcohol, Myirstic acid, Sugar moiety.
