The aim of this study was to identify and characterize the bioactive constituents from methanolic leaf extract of Borassus flabellifer Linn. In the previous study, several steroidal saponins, poly saccharides and triterpenes were isolated from the fruit pulp and seeds, young shoots of Borassus flabellifer contains gum, albuminoids, fats and the fresh pulp contains vitamin A,B and C, the inflorescence contains borassoside, dioscin and also contains sucrose ,bitter compound flabelliferins. The present study was undertaken to explore the potential bioactive constituents from Borassus flabellifer leaves which have been evaluated using IR, MASS, GC-MS, NMR spectral studies for proper characterization and elucidation of structure. Three compounds were isolated and characterized. The compounds were concluded that procatechuic acid, gallic acid and 10-Octadecenoic acid,methyl ester.
Keywords: Procatechuic acid, Gallic acid, 10-Octadecenoic acid,methyl ester, Borassus flabellifer.
