ABSTRACT:
Pharmacologists, Phytochemists and Life science Scientists are interested in identifying novel compounds from waste products. Tender coconut mesocarp is commonly used by coir industries for manufacturing bags, cups etc., Cost of that waste product is also less. Aim of the present study is to estimate the quantity of secondary metabolites and evaluate the presence of various pharmacologically active compounds in acetone extract of tender coconut mesocarp (TCM) by LC-MS analysis. The acetone extract of TCM is a rich source of macromolecules like carbohydrate, protein, and micromolecule like Vitamin C and secondary metabolites like phenolic compounds, flavonoids and tannin. LC-MS chromatogram of TCM acetone extract shows the presence of numerous active compounds including glucosylsphingosine, didesmethylimipramine sulfinpyrazone with 13.32, 21.67, 24.88 ppm respectively etc., In conclusion, TCM is a rich source of pharmacologically active phytoconstituents which can be used by pharmaceutical industry for the development of new drug for various ailments.
KEYWORDS:
