Abstract: GC-MS-MS analysis was carried out for the identification of phytochemicals present in the n-hexane leaf extract of C. papaya variety CO7. It indicates that the leaf extract is rich in alkaloids, phenolics, fatty acids, and flavonoids. All compounds identified by GC/MS/MS screening were assessed for their anticancerous, antimicrobial, antioxidant and insecticidal property using physico-chemical property calculations according to Tice Rules. The phytochemicals such as Clausamine G, Galactitol, Ibogamine are found to have anticancer property. Garveatin D, N-Methylaspartic acid were reported as antimicrobial metabolites.
