Abstract: The aim of the present study was to find the chemical constituents from aerial parts of A. absinthium- a medicinally important herb. The phytochemical analysis was carried out by using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy instrument for the presence of active constituents. Three solvents viz. Methanol, Petroleum ether and Dichloromethane were used for extraction. The results showed the presence of 15 compounds in the Methanolic extract, 19 compounds in the Petroleum ether extract and 25 compounds in the Dichloromethane extract. Interpretation on mass spectrum of GC-MS was done using the National Institute Standard and Technology database comparing the spectral data of known compounds present in spectral library.
