Present study was designed to determine the presence of various phytoconstituents in methanolic extract of leaves of the plant Abutilon pannosum
by preliminary phytochemical screening and to identify possible specific compounds with their concentration through GC-MS analysis. Methanolic extract of leaves of Abutilon pannosum
was prepared and analyzed qualitatively for presence or absence of various phytoconstituents such as carbohydrates, protein, alkaloid, steroid, phenol, glycosides, terpenoids, flavonoids etc. furthermore GC-MS analysis was performed for identification of phytocomponents. Preliminary phytochemical screening of methanolic extract of Abutilon pannosum
by common methods revealed presence of carbohydrates, amino acids, alkaloids, phenols, flavonoids, phytosterols, terpenoids, glycosides etc. GC-MS analysis revealed presence of various phytocompounds most of them have reported to have medicinal utility like n-Hexadicanoic acid, Phytol, Vitamin E, Lupeol, 2,3 Dihydrobenzofuran, Stigmasterol, Ergost-5-en-3-ol,(3.beta.,24R),gamma–Sitosterol, Neophytadien, Naphthalene, Tocopherols such as alpha Tocospiro A and alpha Tocospiro B. Presence of various phytochemical compounds in the leaves of Abutilon pannosum
justifies the medicinal use of the plant. The present study results could provide future insight of this plant to be useful in pharmaceutical industries for welfare of human being.
