Abstract

The present study is the comparative GC-MS analysis of an edible plant Alternanthera philoxeroides (Mart.) Griseb and Alternanthera bettzickiana (Regel) G. Nicholson.  The shade dried aerial parts of plant powder A. philoxeroides and A. bettzickiana were extracted with ethanol.  The GC-MS analysis shows different peaks with low and high molecular weight determining the presence of many bioactive compounds.  The phytoconstituents in the ethanolic extract of Alternanthera philoxeroides and Alternanthera bettzickiana have been screened by using GC-MS analysis.  A. bettzickiana ethanol extracts showed higher phytoconstituents when compared to the ethanol extracts of A.philoxeroides.  This study helps to explore the potential compounds and the presence of these compounds may proceed to find out various therapeutic activities.

Keywords: GC-MS analysis, phytoconstituents, Alternanthera philoxeroides, Alternanthera bettzickiana, ethanol extract.
