Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the phytochemical compounds of ethanol extract of Pteridium aquilinum (L.) Kuhn using GC-MS analysis. In GC-MS analysis, 19 bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified in the ethanolic extract of Pteridium aquilinum (L.) Kuhn the components were identified by using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, the results of GCMS compounds in the extract was relevant to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. The major constituents were decane (12.1%), 1,3,7-Octatriene, 3,7-dimethyl (26.42%) and Limonene (10.89%).
