Abstract

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of the aquatic fern Marsilea quadrifolia was carried. The thirteen bioactive compounds identified are Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (26.88%), Phytol (16.97%), 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z) (12.46%), 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, diisooctyl ester (8.62%), 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-ol (6.71%), 2(3H)-Furanone, dihydro-3-hydroxy-4,4-dimethyl (n) (6.56%), Octadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (5.69%), 2-Piperidinone, N-[4-bromo-n-butyl (4.53%), Spiro[androst-5-ene-17,1'-cyclobutan]-2'-one, 3-hydroxy-, (3a,17a) (4.16%), Z,Z,Z-1,4,6,9-Nonadecatetraene (3.86%), 2,6,10-Dodecatrien-1-ol, 3,7,11-trimethyl-, (E,E) (1.82%), 10-Undecen-1-al, 2-methyl (1.20%), 5à-Androstan-16-one, cyclic ethylene mercaptole (0.53%).
