Chandasekar S and Malathi R

The present investigation was carried out to determine the chemical components of ethanolic extracts of Moringa concanensis leaves using Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry. GC-MS analysis of ethanolic extract of Moringa concanensis leaves revealed that the existence of 1,2-15,16-Diepoxyhexadecane (36.25 %), Butanoic Acid, 3-Cyano-3-Hydroxy-, Ethyl Ester (14.29), N-Hexadecanoic Acid (11.48 %), Butanoic Acid, 3-Cyano-3-Hydroxy-, Ethyl Ester (8.15 %), Phytol (6.75 %), Tetratetracontane (6.18 %), Tetratetracontane (5.66 %), 2-[3-(4-Tert-Butyl-Phenoxy)-2-Hydroxy-Propylsulfanyl]-4,6-Dimethyl-NI (3.643 %), Acetamide, N-(6-Acetylaminobenzothiazol-2-YL)-2-(Adamantan-1-YL) (3.56 %), Nonadecane, 2-Methyl (2.54 %), 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-Hexadecen-1-OL (1.453 %). The results of this study offer a platform of using Moringa concanensis leaves as herbal alternative for various diseases.
