Abstract:
Present research was constructed to find out the phytochemical compounds of methanol, ethanol and acetone extracts of Curcuma longa, Curcuma angustifolia and Curcuma decipiens. This investigation also revels the comparision of methanolic extract of these selected species of family zingiberaceae by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry technique. The main goal of this study to compare phytochemicals of cultivated species with wild species of genus Curcuma. The results obtained from GC-MS indicate that 34 phytochemicals were found in Curcuma angustifolia, 63 phytochemicals were found in Curcuma decipiens and 53 phytochemicals were found in Curcuma longa. 10 phytochemical compounds of Curcuma longa were identical with Curcuma angustifolia and 14 with Curcuma decipiens, while other phytochemicals of these wild species were different from Curcuma longa and can be used to treat various diseases.
