Abstract

Alternantera sessilis is one of the medicinally important plants belonging to the family Amaranthaceae commonly known as Ponnannkannikkirai in Tamil. Traditionally, leaves are used in the treatment of skin disease and fever. It is an effective hepatoprotective agent. In present study the aqueous extract of a Alternantera sessilis has been subjected to GC-MS analysis. As a result of analysis of many constituents were found to be present in the Alternantera sessilis leaf extract. The major chemical constituent is 17a-Acetoxy-1,1-dicarboethoxy-1a,2a-dihydro-17a-methyl-3H-cycloprop[1,2]-5a-androst-1-en-3-one.
