The aim of this study was to investigate the bioactive compounds from methanolic extract of Cissus vitiginea leaves
by Gas chromatography and Mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). GC-MS analysis of methanolic extract was done by
standard protocol using the equipment Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, while the mass
spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) library. The GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of various compounds like Tetradecanoic acid (19.658),
3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol (20.921), 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol (21.144), Hexadecanoic
acid, methyl ester (21.636), Oleic Acid (21.865), l-(+)-Ascorbic acid 2,6-dihexadecanoate(22.057), 9-Octadecenoic
acid (22.712), Andrographolide (22.947), Heptadecanoic acid (23.106), Octadecanoic Acid, methyl ester (23.817),
9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (24.552) and 22-Tricosenoic acid (26.836) in the methanolic extract of Cissus vitiginea.
These findings support the traditional use of Cissus vitiginea in various disorders.
