Abstract:
The identification of components presents in the plants is very important to the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, fragrance and food industries. This study report, for the first time, the phytoconstituents present in dichloromethane fraction of Scutia buxifolia Reissek stem bark and leaves. The fractions were analyzed by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) and twenty-seven different compounds were identified in the fractions analyzed. In the dichloromethane (DCM) fraction of the leaves were identified sixteen compounds, totaling 36.98% and eighteen compounds were described in DCM fraction of the stem bark, representing 16.17%. The main constituents of the fractions were Spathulenol (4.28%), 3-hexen-1-ol (3.96%), ethyl-octadecenoate (3.72%), octadeca-9,12-dienoic acid (3.48%); 5, 9-heptadecadienoate (3.61%) and hexadecanoic acid (3.58%). Furthermore, several secondary metabolites with interesting biological activity, such as: thymol, β-cubebene, p-xilene, phytol, neophytadiene, lanost-8-en-24-al and stigmastan-3,5-diene were also identified in of S. buxifolia DCM fractions, these results serve as a incentive for additional studies bioguied and related to biological activity of this species.
