GC-MS is one of the best techniques to identify the constituents of volatile matter, long chain, branched chain hydrocarbons, alcohols acids, esters etc. The freshwater mussels Parreysia corrugata was analyzed using Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis revealed the presence of 26 compounds. The

The first compound identified with less retention time (30.236 min) was 2,6-Difluorobenzoic acid, tridec-2-ynyl ester, whereas gamma.-Tocopherol was the last compound which took longest retention time (29.84min) to identify. Many of them are used in industry for various applications like flavor, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, pesticide and cancer preventive.
