Abstract:
Phytochemicals identification is necessary to explore its usefulness towards medicinal value and commercial products preparation. Cucumis dipsaceus Ehrenb ex. Spach is a less explored plant in India and the present study focused to find out the phytochemicals present in its fruits by Gas Chromatography –Mass Spectrometry analysis. Fruit extracts were prepared using Petroleum ether, Acetone, Ethanol and Water solvents by successive soxhlet extraction. Crude extracts were subjected to GC-MS analysis and the spectra of the obtained components were compared with the GC-MS NIST (2008) library. The results revealed the presence of bioactive compounds, Octadecanoic acid, Pentadecanoic acid, Eicosanic acid, Oleic acid, Tetradecanal, octadecanal, Pentadecanal, Tridecanoic acid, alkyne and amide compounds. Thus, the present study explored the presence of bioactive compounds in fruits of Cucumis dipsaceus.
