Introduction: To identify various types of bioactive compounds present in unexplored plant Acacia planifrons seeds (wild) by using gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy. Methods: The seed of Acacia planifrons was extracted with ethanol at room temperature for 72 hours fro phytochemical and GC-MS analysis. Results: The GC-MS analysis revealed seven active compounds like Pentadecanoic acid, 14-Methyl, Methyl ester (6.7%), 9,12-Octadecadienoyl chloride (Z,Z) (46.6%), Heptacosanoic acid, Methyl ester (4.72%), E-2 Octadecadecen-1-ol (24.16%), 18-Nonadecen-1-ol (6.41%), 9-Octadecenoic acid (Z)-, Methyl Ester (9.11%) and 11-Tridecen-1-ol (2.20%) in the ethanol extract of Acacia planifrons seeds. Further studies are needed to isolate the active compounds and elucidate the mechanism of action for various disorders.
