Abstract:

Algae and their extracts are abundant sources of chemicals that are physiologically active. They have long been recognized in the development of novel biotechnology products because of their benefits for people, animals, and plants. The current investigation's goal was to determine whether any bioactive substances were present. To identify and characterize the lipids Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was used. The National Institute of Standards and Technology library was used to match the mass spectra of the chemicals discovered in the extract. Maximum % area is found for n-Hexadecanoic acid (26.15%), Hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester (14.96%), 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, methyl ester, (Z, Z Z) -(15.39%), Tetradecanoic acid (5.30%), Phenol, 2, 4-BIS (1,1-Dimethylethyl) -(7.81%), Benzenepropanoic acid, 3,5-bis (1, dimethyl ethynyl)-4-hydroxy-, methyl ester (4.23%), Phytol(4.84%), 1-Heptadecene(3.95%), and Pentadecane (3.73%). The biochemical functions of specific bioactive substances have been found in the extracts of the Rhizoclonium species, Hydrodictyon reticulatum species, and Spirogyra species prepared in methanol, chloroform, n-hexane, and MTBE (tert-Butyl Methyl Ether). The outcome of this experiment demonstrates the benefits of using green algae, which have a variety of therapeutic capabilities and are highly recommended as a biological choice with significant pharmaceutical value.
