Abstract


The present study deals with the GC MS analysis of Adiantum caudatum L. to know the presence of phytochemicals present in this plant. The GC MS profile indicated the presence of some very important molecules such as 1. Quinoline-1-carboxxaldehyde, 1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydrro-4, 8-dimethyl-2spirocyclohexane (19.90%), 2. Cis-9-Hexadecenal, 9-Hexadecenal, (Z)-, (21.76%), 3. 4H-Pyran-4-one, 3-acetyl-2-(4-acetyl phenyl amino)-6-methyl, (21.91%) and 4. Retinoic acid, 5, 8-epoxy-5-8-dhydro5, 6-Epoxyretinoic acid (32.77%). These molecules have a number of important medicinal roles which could substantiate their participation towards the medicinal activity of Adiantum caudatum L. as a medicine proposed by Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani including anti-diabetic property. Further work in this direction is going on to prove the medicinal efficacy of the plant.
