Abstract

Acacia nilotica is the member of the family Mimosaceae; Acacia nilotica is multipurpose nitrogen fixing tree legume. It is widely spread in subtropical and tropical Africa from Egypt to Mauritania southwards to South Africa, and in Asia eastwards to Pakistan and India. The aim of this research work was to carry out for identification of various bioactive compounds from chromatographic fractions of Acacia nilotica leaves by Gas chromatography and Mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). A total of 40 compounds were observed that has been shown in the table 3.1. The GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of various compounds like 2,6-Lutidine-3,5-dichloro-4-dodecylthio, 10-Methyldodecan-4-olide, Octanoic acid, Urs-12-ene, Bis-2-ethylhexyl phthalate and Phenol-2,4-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl) in the chromatographic fractions. Further studies are needed to isolate active compounds of the fractions as well as to explicate their exact mechanism of action in various disorders.
