Extracts of Sida acuta can be effectively employed as antimicrobial agents specifically antifungal to control growth and colonization on commercially important plants like Sorghum species. Furthermore, stem part of Sida acuta plant has less studied and hence, it is important to isolate phytoactives from stem extract of Sida acuta. Hence, the present study was designed to conduct with main objective to determine bioactive components of aqueous (aq.) stem extract of Sida acuta by GC-MS analysis. The fresh stem parts of Sida acuta collected was subjected aqueous extraction by successive extraction with water. In the present study we identified 9, 12, 15-Octadecatrienoic acid, ethylester, (Z, Z, Z), gamma-Sitpsterol, l-(+)-Ascorbicacid2, 6-dihexadecanoate, 9, 12-Octadecadienoicacid(Z, Z), 4-Hydroxy-2-methylacetophenone, 1, 3-Propanediol, 2-(hydroxymethyl)-2-nitro, Stigmasterol and Trilinolein as predominant compounds present in the aq. stem extract of Sida acuta through GC-MS analysis and characterization. In conclusion, this is the preliminary study wherein we identified eleven bioactive compounds in aq. stem extract of Sida acuta and hence, further in-vitro and in-vivo research investigations are recommended to evaluate the pharmacological activities of prevailing compounds identified in aq. stem extract of Sida acuta.
