|Abstract: ||Amorphophallus sylvaticus (Roxb) (Araceae) seed acquired with different solvent extraction. The investigation aimed to carry out the GC-MS analysis of methanolic extracts of the seed Amorphophallus sylvaticus (Roxb) (Araceae). The preliminary analysis revealed the seeds contain both fixed and essential oils, proteins, alkaloids and saponin. Much of the biological activity of the seeds has been shown to be due to Eugenol, the major component of the essential oil which is also present in the fixed oil. The present study deals with the analysis of phytochemicals by qualitative and quantitative procedures using the ethanolic extracts of seeds of Amorphophallus sylvaticus by using soxhlet apparatus. Phytochemical constituents like alkaloids, flavanoids, saponins, Eugenol, glycosides in the ethanolic extract of Amorphophallus sylvaticus were also identified by GC-MS technique.|
