Satpute SB and Vanmare DJ
Phytochemical analysis of leaves of Balanites aegyptica
were carried out by using HRLC-MS spectra method. It is highly sensitive and used for rapid identification of bioactive compounds. These mass spectra are fingerprint of that compound which can be identified from the data library. It may be the first report of its kind to analyze the bioactive compounds of Balanites aegyptica
L. The phytochemical study indicates the presence of important bioactive compounds which can be used to treat many diseases in medical field. Phytochemical analysis of methanolic leaf extract of Balanites aegyptica
L. spectrum profile shows total 100 compounds, out of that 23 major compounds were confirmed on the basis of their retention time, mass, molecular formula and mass per charge ratio (m/z). The findings of this study suggested that, Balanites aegyptica
L. is a source of important bioactive compounds. It may be contributing natural antimicrobial, antioxident, anti-inflammentary activity and further investigations which may lead to the development of drug formulation.
