ABSTRACT:
Traditionally, Annona muricata is been used in the treatment of diseases. Phytocompounds of Annona muricata seed methanol extract were determined by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry analysis. The result obtained from the GC-MS analysis of methanol extract of Annona muricata seed led to identification of four(4) compounds. The components were identified by comparing their retention indices and mass spectra fragmentation patterns with those stored in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. The major constituents reported are hexadecanoic acid (16.39 %), 2,6-dimethyl-1,7-octadien-3-ol (17.50%), 9-octadecanoic acid(53.92%) and nonadecanoic acid (12.19%).
KEYWORDS:
Chromatogram, Annona muricata, retention indices, mass spectra.
