DH. Geetha*, Indhiramuthu Jayashree and M. Rajeswari
The investigation was carried out to determine the potential bioactive components the ethanol extract of fruit of Elaeocarpus serratus was scrutinized using GC-MS analysis. Thirty components were identified; the following were major components were n-octanol (25.91%), n-hexadecene (9.73%), n-dodecanol (9.24%), n-pentadecanol (8.04%), 3-pentyl-1-cyclohexanone (7.78%), n-hexadecanol (6.11%). n-octanol was the first to come out from the column (RT=3.04 min.), n-pentadecanol was retained in the column for the longest time
(RT=40.22min.). Some pharmacologically active compounds were also noticed in the fruit extract.
Keywords: Bioactive components, Elaeocarpus serratus, n-octanol, n-hexadecene, Tricosane.
