Abstract

The present study was carried out to analyse the acetone extract of marine green macro alga Caulerpa racemosa (Forssk.) Web. V. Bosse using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to reveal the presence of various secondary metabolites and bioactive compounds. The analysis revealed eleven bioactive compounds such as trans-Z-.alpha-bisabolene epoxide (2.041%), hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (10.528%), n-hexadecanoic acid (4.562%), octadecanoic acid (16.371%) pentadecane (44.589%),  didodecyl phthalate (2.323%), palmitaldehyde (5.316%), α-D-ribofuranoside phenyl-2,3-O-isopropylidene-1-thio- (2.247%), tetracosanal (2.589%), vitamin-E (3.976%) and 1,3-dioxolane, 4-ethyl-5-octyl-2, 2-bis (trifluoromethyl)- (5.458%). The bioactive compounds from acetone extract of Caulerpa racemosa (Forssk.) Web. V. Bosse may have the potential effect against bacteria, fungi, free radical scavenging, etc and can used in the drug discovery and development sector.
