Coriander leaves are one of most commonly used spices which has beneficial physiological effects on lipid metabolism, stimulate digestion, inhibit platelet aggregation, antioxidant, antilithogenic, anti-inflammatory potential, antibacterial, diuretic, expectorant, anti-pyretic, laxative etc. Our present work aimed to identify the possible phytochemical compounds using GCMS along with its functional groups using FTIR, present in the methanolic extract of Coriandrum Sativum leaves. The GC-MS analysis extract of Coriandrum Sativum leaves showed nearly 40 compounds and most of the compounds identified has proved for possessing potentially medicinal values. As per the data analysis of FTIR, it was found that the strong absorption bands at 3372.30 cm–1 which is representative for N-H stretching vibrations, characteristic of the presence of amino acids and also at 1253.54 cm–1 representing the stretching vibrations of C-O indicative of the acid.
Keywords: GCMS, FTIR, Coriandrum, chromatogram, spectral analysis.
