Abstract

GC-MS ANALYSIS OF BIOACTIVE COMPONENTS OF AN IMPORTANT MEDICINAL FERN ACTINIOPTERIS RADIATA (SWARTZ) LINK.

Manonmani R.* and Catharin Sara S.

ABSTRACT

The phytochemical constituents are responsible for medicinal activities of plant species. The present investigation was carried out to analyze the bioactive components from the whole plant of Actiniopteris radiata (Pteridaceae) using GC-MS technique. The chemical compositions of the ethanolic extract of A. radiata were investigated using Perkin- Elmer Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry and five bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified. The ethanolic extract of A. radiata revealed the existence of Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (20.40%), 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid, methyl ester, (E,E)- (10.91%), (E)-9-Octadecenoic acid ethyl ester (63.59%), Docosanoic acid, ethyl ester (4.26%), Heptadecanoic acid, heptadecyl ester (0.84%). The present article revealed the detailed exploration of phytoconstituents and pharmacological activities and confirms the application of A. radiata for various ailments. In future, the isolation of individual phytochemical compound may lead to find a novel drug.

Keywords: Actiniopteris radiata, Pteridaceae, GC-MS analysis, bioactive components, ethanolic extract.
