Author(s): V. R. Mohan, T. Sudha and S. Chidambarampillai

The present investigation was carried out to analyze the active constituents present in aerial parts of Kirganelia reticulata (Euphorbiaceae). Twenty one compounds were identified by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The prevailing compounds were 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol (20.45%), 2(1H)-Naphthalenone, 4a,5,6,7,8,8a-hexahydro-6-[1-(hydroxymethyl)ethenyl]-4,8a-dimethyl-, [4ar-(4aa, 6a, 8aa)]- (14.87%), a-Sitosterol (8.11%), Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (7.53%), Vitamin E (6.69%), Phenol,2,3,5-trimethyl- (6.64%), Lupeol (4.79%), Benzene,1- (1,5-dimethyl-4-hexenyl)-4-methyl- (4.72%),Phytol (4.58%),Stigmasterol (4.51%).
