Phytochemical Screening of leaf extract of Syzygium Cumini L. by HRLC-MS Spectra Method

Authors(2) :-Satpute S.B., Vanmare D.J.

By using HRLC-MS spectra method, Phytochemical screening of leaves of Syzygium cumini L. were carried out. It is highly sensitive and used for rapid identification of bioactive compounds. These mass spectra are fingerprint of that compound which can be identified from the data library. It may be the first report of its kind to analyze the bioactive compounds of Syzygium cumini L. The phytochemical study indicates the presence of important bioactive compounds which can be used to treat many diseases in medical field. Phytochemical analysis of methanolic leaf extract of Syzygium cumini L. spectrum profile shows total 80 compounds, out of that 19 major compounds were confirmed on the basis of their retention time, mass, molecular formula and mass per charge ratio (m/z). The findings of this study suggested that, Syzygium cumini L. is a source of important bioactive compounds. It may be contributing natural antimicrobial, antioxident, anti-inflammentary activity and further investigations which may lead to the development of drug formulation.
