Abstract:
Chenopodium album (L.) commonly known as Bathua belonging to the family Chenopodiaceae. It is a very common weedy herb. The plants have many medicinal properties being used for the treatment of many diseases like rheumatism, arthritis, burns, dysentery, bleeding piles, splenic disorders etc. Hence the present study deals with the determination of different phytochemical constituents in the methanolic extract of Chenopodium album leaf using the GCMS technique. GCMS analysis of methanolic extract of C. album leaf reveals the presence of many phytochemicals. Main bioactive compounds are n-Hexadecanoic acid, L-Proline, 5-oxo-, methyl ester, Pidolic Acid, l-Phenylalanine, N-butyryl-, methyl ester, 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol, Hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester, 2-Diacetylamino-3-(1H-indol-3-yl)-propionic acid, methyl ester. etc. The present study revealed the presence of many pharmacologically and therapeutically active compounds in the plant which justify the use of the plant in the treatment of many disorders by the traditional practitioners.
