VOLATILE COMPONENTS OF BANANA PEELS TEA; A NEW PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCT
Keywords:Banana peels, Ether extract, Petroleum ether extract, Volatile compounds
Banana (Musa sp.) is an important edible medicinal plant. This plant is a rich source of many important biologically active secondary metabolites. This work is performed to evaluate volatile compounds of both petroleum ether and ether extracts of banana peels tea. GC analysis of ether extract revealed that, it contained 13 volatile compounds. The most dominant compound of this extract is 17-(1,5-Dimethyl-3-phenylthiohex-4-enyl) -4,4,10,13,14-pentamethyl-2,3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17-tetradecahydro-1-H-cyclopent(a)phenanthren-3-ol; Area % is 30.84, this compound is followed by Butylated Hydroxytoluene; Area % is 7.77. Benzene, (1-Propyloctyl)- was found to be the least available compound in this extract; Area % is 1.51. Petroleum ether extract was found to contain 20 volatile compounds. The most dominant compound in this extract is Benzene, (1-butylheptyl)-; Area % is 9.45, this compound is followed by Benzene, (1-pentylheptyl)-; Area % is 8.65. Benzene, (1-ethyloctyl)- was found to be the least available compound in this extract; Area % is 2.28.
