Naveen K. L and Ramamurthy V

Plants are a rich source of secondary metabolites with interesting biological activities. Natural product with antioxidant properties could trigger this goal. To quantify the major secondary metabolites and the antioxidant potential of ethanolic bulb extract of Bellicoryne plumbaginifolia. In the present study ethanolic bulb extract of B. plumbaginifolia was analyzed using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) and the compound structures were identified with help of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. GC-MS analysis of test plant revealed the presence of 20 bioactive compounds. Among them 3 The prevailing compounds were 2-Pentadecanone, 6,10,14-trimethyl- $$ Hexahydrofarnesyl acetone $$ 6,10,14-Trimethyl-2-pentadecanone (6.87%), n-Hexadecanoic acid $$ Hexadecanoic acid $$ n-Hexadecoic acid $$ Palmitic acid $$ Pentadecanecarboxylic acid (25.75%) are important bioactive compounds which act as essential drugs for dangerous diseases and disorders and other compounds are used in antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cytotoxicity and cancer preventive activities.
