Phytochemical Screening and GC-MS Analysis of Bioactive Constituents of Methanolic Extract from Anethum graveolens Leaves Powder

Anethum graveolens leaves are the medicinal plants belong to the umbelliferae family and native to Mediterranean, Europe and Asian countries. The dill leaves are smaller and similar to the fennel leaves. The phytochemicals are the compounds that possess many pharmacological activities. Dill is a plant that is known for their medicinal values. This plant preliminary phytochemical screening was found to have positive reactions on carbohydrates, alkaloids, terpenoids, flavonoids, tannins, cardiac glycoside. In this study the possible phytochemicals were investigated of dried dill leaves powder with methanolic solvent extraction of the sample using GC-MS method. Results revealed that the phytochemicals confirmed the presence of biological activity including antimicrobial, anti-cancer, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, hypocholesterolemic, antiarthritic, and antioxidant.
