Characterization of Organic Compounds in Aframomum melegueta K. Schum Using GC-MS
Medicinal & Aromatic Plants
In this study, we characterized organic compounds from extracts of the herb Aframomum melegueta K. Schum using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GCMS) analysis. The influence of five different solvents, 10% sodium hydroxide (NaOH), methanol, ethanol, petroleum ether and n-hexane on the nature of extracted organic compounds and efficiency of extraction was evaluated. Results showed that organic compounds present in extracts of A. melegueta depends on the type of extraction solvents used anddoi:10.35248/2167-04184.108.40.2061 fatcat:iheuydhnbvan3icbmfb2wqjexy
