Abstract: The GC-MS studies of the methanolic leaf extracts Eupatorium triplinerve Vahl. The four major compounds highest peaks area (%) (9, 12, 15-Octadecatrienoic acid (20.18), n-Hexadecanoic acid (13.73), 4H-Pyran-4-1-2, 3-dihydro-3, 5-dihydroxy-6-methyl (8.36), 2-Methoxy-4-Ethyl-6-Methyphenol) The FT-IR spectroscope studies related different characteristic peak values with many functional compounds in the extracts. FT-IR analysis of methanol leaf extract confirmed the presence of amide, alcohols, phenol, alkanes, carboxylic, aldehydes, ketones, alkenes, primary amines, aromatic, esters, alkyl halides, and aliphatic amines compounds. This showed major peak. The bioactive compounds in the methanolic leaf extract of Eupatorium triplinerve have been screened using this analysis. Isolation of individual components would however help to find new drugs.
