GC-MS Analysis of Phytochemical Compounds in Cajanus Cajan Leaf


Cajanus cajan is one of the second most dietary legume crops. The quest in search of new alternatives for raw material for food and pharmaceutical industry suggest the use of natural plant products. The ethanol extracts were prepared by simple method of cold extraction, the extracts were characterized by the Phytochemical analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and Gas chromatography mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) to identify some fatty acids and heterocyclic compounds present in the leaves extract. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, phenol, saponins, tannins and steroids, the study reveal the chemical constituents of Cajanus cajan leaf that these constituents may be behind their medicinal values in phytomedicine.
