Author(s): T Gowdhami, AK Rajalakshmi
Abstract: The aim at the present study was to investigate the ethanol extract from Jasminum auriculatum Vahl. Qualitative analysis showed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, flavonoids, tannins, phenol, steroids, terpenoids and glycosides in the different leaf extracts. The leaf extract did not contain proteins, mucilage, saponins, fats and fixed oil. This work deals with the phytochemical screening and GC-MS studies of the ethanol extract. The highest peak area (35.16%) was obtained by n-Hexadecanoic acid (C16H32O2) at retention time of 17.275 and the lowest peak area (0.23%) was obtained by Octacosane (C28H58) at retention time of 30.441. The FT-IR spectroscope studies shows different characteristic peak values with many functional groups present like alkyl halides, aromatics, aliphatic amines, alkanes, amines, unsaturated esters, anhydride, alkene, alkynes, nitriles, carboxylic acids alcohol and phenol.The results important bioactive compounds leaf extracts and these constituents may be responsible for pharmacological activities.
