Analisys of component composition of volatile compounds of field sow thistle (Sonchus Arvensis L.) leaves using the method of gas chromatography with mass-detection
Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis revealed the presence of 26 compounds in leaves of field sow thistle Nutt. In GC-MS analysis, some of the phytocomponents screened were phytol, pentacosane, 1, 2-benzenedicarboxylic acid, bis (2-methylpropyl) ester. The compounds were identified by comparing their retention time and peak area with that of literature and by interpretation of mass spectra. Many of them have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticancer actions.
