Abstract:
The plant Commelina diffusa Burm. f. (C. diffusa) is the richest bio-resource of drugs of traditional systems of medicine, modern medicines, nutraceuticals, food supplements, folk medicines, pharmaceutical intermediates and chemical entities for synthetic drugs. Hence we have selected shoots of C. diffusa for premilinary phytochemical study and GC-MS analysis. For the premilinary phytochemial analysis dried powdered shoots of C. diffusa was extracted with methanol, aqueous and petroleum ether. Prepared extracts were used qualitative phytochemical tests and the methanol extracts were used for GC-MS. In the preliminary phytochemical test of the methanolic extract of shoots were showed higher amount of steroids, alkaloids, phenolic compounds, tannins, saponins, amino acid and phytosteroids. And the Gas chromatography - mass spectrometry results revealed presence of 21 phytoconstituents in methanol extract.
