The Bacterial metabolites have great importance for humans. The aim of the present study is to determine the potential bioactive components of bacterial metabolites using polar and non-polar solvent by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry analysis. The chemical compositions of ethanol and chloroform extracts of bacterial secondary metabolites were investigated using Perkin-Elmer instrument. The GC-MS analysis provided nine compound with different Retention Time and peak area namely 2,6,10-Trimetyl-12-oxatricyclo[126.96.36.199(1,6)]tridec-2-ene; Nicotinic acid,1,6-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-oxo-2-propyl-ethyl ester; Benzoic acid,2-amino-6- chloro-methyl ester and Heptadecanoic acid,9-methyl-,methyl ester; 2-(2,6,6-Trimethylcyclohex-1-enyl)cyclopropanecarboxylic acid, methyl ester; 9-Octadecenoic acid,(E)-; Pentadecanoic acid,13methyl-,methyl ester. Out of nine compounds Heptadecanoic acid, 9-methyl-, methyl ester was found as similar in both extracts. Five dissimilar and two similar compounds were obtained from the two solvents.
