Bioactive compounds are the frontline potent agents in both nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries. Recently, the bioactive compounds are gaining much importance for their ability in enhancing resistance to various diseases and to improve the health of people both by traditional and modern ways of administrations. Therefore, in the present investigation was undertaken to explore the potential bioactive components present in the ethanolic leaves extract of Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms. by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The GC-MS analysis showed 18 bioactive compounds. The major compounds identified are Propiolic acid, phytol, Dibutyl phthalate, Hexasiloxane, Ethyl 9, 12,15octadecatrienoate, Octasiloxane, Dlà Tocopherol, Stigmasterol and 17-Pentatriacontene. In a mass spectrum, each compounds were identified based on their retention time and peak area. The results of this study offer a platform of using E. crassipes leaves as herbal alternative for various diseases.
