Abstract

Objective: The present work was done to find out various bioactive compounds present in the chloroform extract of Lycoperdon pyriforme using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).


Methods: L. pyriforme was collected cleaned to remove any dirt and oven dried at 60°C. The sample was then finely powdered and extracted with chloroform using Soxhlet apparatus. The chemical composition of chloroform extract was then analyzed using QP2010S-Shimadzu GC-MS instrument.


Results: Chloroform extract resulted in the presence of 33 compounds with 1-Heneicosanol (11.17%) and E-15-Heptadecenal (11.08%) forming major compounds and 1-Tetradecanol (0.16%), Dichloroacetic acid, and decyl ester (0.15%) forming least.


Conclusion: The results indicated the presence of a variety of compounds thus providing the information about various bioactive compounds present in Lycoperdon sp. and its further application in the field of pharmacology.

Keywords: Lycoperdon pyriforme, Chloroform extract, Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
