Abstract

STUDY OF INVITRO ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY AND GCMS ANALYSIS OF SEEDS OF CUCUMIS MELO

A. Gayathri* and M. Karthika Sri

ABSTRACT

This study investigates with the Phytochemical analysis and antioxidant activity of methanolic extract of Cucumis melo belongs to cucurbitaceae family. The seed extract of this fruit exhibit Tannins, Steroids, Terpenoids, Coumarins, Leucoanthocyanins, Phytosterols, Proteins and amino acids as phytochemicals during analysis. The bionutrients were qualitatively analysed and their antioxidant activity was estimated using Hydrogen peroxide. GC-MS (Gas Chromotography-Mass Spectrometry) analysis of the seed extract exposed presence of compounds such as 2,6,10-trimethyl, 14-ethylene- 14-pen, 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, methyl ester, 2-hexadecen-1-ol, 3,7,11,15-tetramethyl, 9-Octadecen-1-ol, 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, (Z,Z,Z), Octadecanoic acid and their biological activity quantitatively. Isolation of bioactive compounds could help to find new drugs to treat various diseases.

Keywords: Cucumis melo, Phytocomponents, Antioxidant activity, GCMS.
