Knowledge of the chemical constituents of plants is desirable for understanding the medicinal value and for its application in treatment of various diseases. The present study was carried out to determine the bioactive components of Ziziphus jujuba (Mill) leaves using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, The mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. GC-MS analysis of methanolic extract of Ziziphus jujuba leaves revealed the existence of Squalene (29.57), 9octadecenoic acid (z)/phenylmethyl ester (28.65), Isomenthol (27.64) and 2-hexadecen-1-ol, 3, 7, 11, 15-tetramethyl (14.14). This study will offer a platform for the production of herbal medicines for various ailments by using Ziziphus jujuba leaves.
Keywords: Ziziphus Jujuba (Mill), Phytochemical screening, GC-MS analysis.
