Author(s): Mukhtar M, Adamu HM and Falalu MY
Abstract: The active compounds of the acetone extract of Mitragyna inermis were isolated using solvent- solvent extraction and column chromatography. Seven phytochemical constituents have been identified by GC-MS analysis by comparing the fragmentation of the unknown compounds with that of library database. The compounds identified are Ethanone 1-(2,3,4trimethylphenyl)-, 4H-pyran-4-one-3-acetyl-, 2-6- dimethyl, 3-acetyl pentan-2,4-dione, and phenol, 2,5-dimethyl- acetate.
