Vadivel Balamurugan, Veluchamy Balakrishnan, Arjunan Sundaresan

Today natural products derived from plants are being tested for presence of new drugs with new modes of pharmacological action. Moringa concanensis (M. concanensis) is belonging to family of Moringaceae and well known in Indian traditional system for its traditional uses.rnAim of the study: Hence the objective of the present study is to explore the possible bioactive compounds in the ethanolic extracts of leaf and bark of M. concanensis, using GC-MS Methods.rnMethods: GC-MS analysis of the plant extracts were performed by using Perkin-Elmer GC clauses 500 system and mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the data in the library of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).rnResults: In this GC-MS analysis, 15 compounds in leaf and 16 compounds in bark were identified in ethanolic extracts of M. concanensis.rnConclusions: The presence of various bioactive compounds justifies M. concanensis is an excellent phytocomponents and to treat various disease and complications in human beings.rnAbbreviations: M. concanensis, Moringa concanensis; GC–MS, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry; NIST, National Institute of Standards and Technology; RT, retention time; MV, molecular weight
