Olive leaves grown in wild Mediterranean region and America contain higher concentrations of active ingredients such as Oleuropein and Astrul and Allecin. It is used as oil which contains 75% of Oleic acid. The degrees of toxicity of the olive leaves after administration was noticed almost virtually non-existent. The use of pure Oleuropein or in a crude extract has its own therapeutic value in treating diabetes, kills a broad range of bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds and also found it regulates the blood pressure level thereby reducing the possibility of stroke and cardiac arrest. In this study we want to diagnosis some active organic compounds that are present in olive leaf extract using UV spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry, Infrared Spectroscopy FT-IR techniques. There are about 20 chemical compounds of olive leaf ethanolate extracts have been identified, including hydrocarbons about 61.48%, while Al oxygenic vehicles represent 35.34%.
Keywords: Olive Leaves, Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectrometry, Infrared Spectroscopy FT-IR, U V Spectroscopy.
