Abstract:

Polyalthia longifolia is a tall evergreen tree belongs to the family Annonaceae. The present study includes the detailed exploration of biochemical constituents and anti-microbial activities of bark of Polyalthia longifolia. To study the biochemical and antibacterial activity, the Methanol extract of powdered bark of Polyalthia longifolia was prepared by using Soxhlet apparatus. Then the extract studied in GC-MS to know the biochemical. GC-MS results were revealed the presence of Cycloheximide, Cholestrol, Fluorescein o-acrylate, 11 Cis-Retinal, Cetyl alcohol, Tridecyltrichloroacetate, Thymol, Methyl palmitate, Cyclandelate, Dibutyl phthalate, Methyl stearate, Enoxolone or glycyrrhetinic acid. Presence of these compounds shows the properties of anti-diabetic, polymer processing, additives, anti-foam, effective in the treatment of peptic ulcer, production of detergents, soaps and cosmetics such as shampoos and shaving cream products.
