The aim of this study is to evaluate the bioactive compounds in the ethanolic leaf extract of Azima tetracantha by using Gas chromatography- Mass Spectrometry (GC- MS). Azima tetracantha leaves were collected from Ariyalur District, Tamil Nadu. The dried leaf powder was extracted with the solvent ethanol by using Soxhlet apparatus. One microlitre of the extract was subjected for analysis by GC- MS to detect the presence of bioactive compounds present in the plant. The results shown that the leaves of Azima tetracantha contained 39 compounds of which the major is 5-methyl-2-Furancarboxaldehyde (13.17%) followed by Maltol (8.62%).
