Obomanu F. G., Dokubo A.* and James-Egesi I. N.

ABSTRACT

This study investigated the bioactive components of seed oil of Parinari excelsa fruit using GC-MS (HP 6890 and mass spectrometer model 5973 AgilentTech). The result showed that twenty six (26) components were identified and analyzed in the seed oil of P. excelsa. 5,8,11,14,17-Eicosapentaenoic acid, methyl ester, (all-Z)- had the highest percentage (20.777%) with RT 23.914 followed by 1-Naphthamide, N-butyl-N-hexyl- (11.996%) with RT 29.478, followed by Sarcosine, N-(1-naphthoyl)-, octyl Ester 2- (11.683%), RT 29.556, Benzamide, 2-bromo-N-[2-(3-fluorophenyl)-5-benzoxazolyl]- (8.006%) with RT 29.255, (Octanoyloxy) propane-1,3-diyl bis(decanoate) (8.005%), RT 29.652 and 5,8,11,14-Eicosatetraenoic acid, methyl ester, (all-Z)- (5.746%) with RT 24.892. On the other hand, Naphthalene, 2-methyl- had the lowest percentage (0.122%) with RT 6.275. The result showed the potentials of P.excelsa seeds to furnish medicinal compounds with potential application in human nutrition.

Keywords: Arinari Excelsa, Bioactives, Seed Oil, Nutrition, Medicinal.
