Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to determine the available possible bioactive components of Glycosmis mauritiana (Lam.) Tanaka. The chemical composition of leaf, stem and root samples of Glycosmis mauritiana was investigated using GC MS, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute Standard and Technology (NIST) library.  Totality, seventeen compounds were identified from the ethanolic leaf extract of G. mauritiana, of which 10 compounds were aliphatic and 7 were aromatic. In aromatic compounds, two belonged to fatty acids and sesquiterpenes, while one compound was alkaloid, alcohol and benzofuran. Among aliphatic compounds; four 4 compounds were belonged to fatty acids, two amide and remaining compounds belonged to carbinol, cyclic amino acids, spiro-compound and steroid respectively. This is the first report about the identification of active compounds from the leaf of G. mauritiana.
