Pharmacological constituents and GC–MS analysis of bioactive compounds present in methanol leaf extract Moringa oleifera


Author(s): Azhagu Madhavan S

Abstract: Moringa oleifera leaves, bioactive compounds within are may possess cancer-selective anti-proliferative properties. Previous research has been conducted in regards to this topic, but poor experimental design due to lack of necessary controls limits the legitimacy of anticancer claims. In order for anticancer claims to be sufficient and yield the opportunity of a potential cancer treatment, Moringa leaf extract must not harm non-cancerous cells. GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of major bioactive compounds 13 compounds with peak percentage in chromatogram. The major found were bioactive compound 1,2,3-Cyclopentanetriol R.T. (13.03), Tetradecanoic acid R.T. (18.67), 2-Butenoic acid, 2-methoxy-3-methyl-, methyl ester R.T. (23.46). M. oliefera contains enormous bioactive compounds which have various biological activities. Therefore, it is recommended that newer Moringa oleifera extract based modern drug to be formulated and produce on commercial scale. M. oleifera in the prevention and treatment of a chronic diseases including inflammatory diseases, neuro-dysfunctional diseases, diabetes, and cancers its potential application in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases or health encouragement.
