Ziziphus oenoplia Mill is medicinal herb, belongs to Rhamnaceae, commonly known as jackal jujube. The plant is used in India and Thailand traditional system of medicine for treatment of uterus inflammation, anthelmintic, spermatorrhoea, healing of cuts and boils. The literature look over revealed the presence of flavanoids, phenols, alkaloids, glycosides, pentacyclic triterpenes, carboxylic acids, aromatic compounds, nitro compounds, and esters. The plant exhibits antibacterial, antimicrobial, wound healing, anthelmintic, antioxidant, antihepatotoxic, antiplasmodial, anticancer, antinociceptive and antidiarrhoeal activity. The fresh leaves of Ziziphus oenoplia were authenticated, collected, shade dried and coarsely powdered, was extracted with hydroalcohol . The extract was concentrated and stored in air tight container for further use. The aim of the present research study was to carry out for the identification of bioactive moleculess from hydroalcoholic extract of Ziziphus oenoplia leaves by Gas chromatography- Mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). GC-MS chromatogram showed twenty bioactive molecules which may attribute to pharmacological properties.
