Phytochemical Screening and GC-MS Analysis in Wild Variety of Coccinia indica – An Future Promising Therapeutic Source

Objective: In current, attention has been reverting back to plants as sources of therapeutic agents due to their superior properties. The literature review exposed that there is no report on phytochemical constituents of wild variety of Coccinia indica. As best of our knowledge there is no such report on study on the fruits of wild variety of Coccinia indica.
Methods: The phytochemical analysis of alcoholic extract of the fruits of wild variety of Coccinia indica was done first time. Further study has been preceded using Gas ChromatographyMass Spectrometry (GC-MS) from alcoholic extract of wild variety of Coccinia indica fruit.
Result: Alcoholic extract of wild variety of Coccinia indica fruit responded optimistically for Steroids, Terpenoids, Saponins, Flavonoids Alkaloids, Tannins, Glycosides, Phenol and Mucilage during qualitative phytochemical analysis. With reference to Library of Terpenoids, it is confirmed that the following compounds are belongs to the group of Terpenoids and identified Terpineol which is also belongs to the Terpinoid group.
Conculsion: Further investigation may lead to isolation of bio-active compounds and their structural elucidation and screening of pharmacological activity will be cooperative for further drug development.
