Abstract

Trachyspermum ammi is a traditional plant which is native of Egypt and is cultivated in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. A GC-MS analysis was performed to identify the biomarkers present in Trachyspermum ammi leaves oil. The GC-MS analysis leads to identification of different phytoconstituents present in volatile oil that was extracted from leaves with help of clavenger apparatus. The phytoconstituents were found are thymol, o-cymene, caryophyllene, ethyl methyl acetal, alpha, pinene, squalene, delta-cadinene, carvacrol. The result of GC-MS analysis confirmed the presence of these all compounds.  The presence of phytoconstitutents reveals the medicinal value of leaves.
