Garuga pinnata (Roxb.) is one of the plant species reported from Palghar district of Maharashtra, belongs to the family Burseraceae with ethno-botanical values and is well-known for their Ethno-medicinal applications. It is commonly known as “Kakad” (Marathi). The present investigation was carried out to characterize the bioactive compounds present in methanolic fruit extract of Garuga pinnata using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrum (GC-MS) method. The results of GC-MS analysis provide different peaks determining the presence of 25 bioactive compounds. The major bioactive compounds 4H-Pyran-4-one, 2,3-dihydro-3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl, 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural, 1,2,3-Benzenetriol, beta-D-Glucopyranose, 1,6-anhydro, Quinic acid, Butanoic acid, octyl ester, n-Hexadecanoic acid and cis-13,16-Docasadienoic acid and minor compounds were also present. Majority of the compounds were belonging to acid group. Hitherto no reports exist on the Phytochemical analysis of Garuga pinnata (Roxb).
