Abstract: The present study was designed to observe the effect of 24-epibrassinolide (EBL) on active phytochemicals present in Brassica juncea L. plants under imidacloprid (IMI) stress. GC-MS analysis of methanolic extracts of 30 days old leaves revealed the stress protective role of 24-EBL by inducing the synthesis of various phytochemicals in B. juncea L. plants under the pesticide stress. Major compounds detected were3-n-butylthiolane, 8-methyl-alpha-ionone, 3,5,6-Tetrafluoroanisole, oxalic acid, ethyl 2-isopropylphenyl ester, nonylphenol isomers, linoleic acid, benzenepropanoic acid 3,5-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)-4-hydroxy- methyl ester, (1E)-1-ethylidene-7a-methyloctahydro-1H-indene, palmitic acid, cis-jasmone, stearic acid, hexadecanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl)ethyl ester, clionasterol, 6-octadecenoic acid.
