GC/MS Determination of Bioactive Constituents of Methanol Fraction of Spilanthes uliginosa (Sw) Leaves

A.J. Uraku    

Abstract: Plant as a source of herbal medicine is the oldest form of medicine known to mankind. It was the mainstay of many earlier civilization and still the most widely practiced form of medicine in the world currently. The GS-MS analysis of the leaf extract of Spilanthes uliginosa (Sw) was investigated. The analysis revealed the presence of six peaks from the chromatogram which showed six phytocompounds. The major phytocompounds identified in the leaf extract are hexadecanoic acid (8.68%), hepta-9, 10, 11-trienoic acid (19.36%), octadecenoic acid (8.14%), 5- hydroxylmethyl heptadecane (14.02%), docosane aldehyde (41.72%) and 1-ethoxyoctadecane (8.08%). The presence of these assorted chemicals may be responsible for the beneficial potentials of Spilanthes uliginosa (Sw) in tradomedicine.
