Gas chromatography-Mass spectrometry analysis of Combretum dolichopentalum showed presence of 24 bioactive photo organic compounds which includes: Nitrocyclohexane, Phenol-2,6-bis(1,1-dimethyl)-4-methyl, methyl carbamate, 2,7 Dimethyl-1-octanol, 3,7,11,15-Tetramethyl- 2-hexadecen-1-ol, Hexadecane, Heptadecanoic acid, Octadecanoic acid, Tetratetracotane, 1-Fluorodecane, Eicosanoic acid, (E)-2,4,5- Trimethoxylpropenyl benzene, 2(4H)-Benzofuranone-5,6,7,7a-tetrahydro-4,4,7a-trimethyl-amino caproic lactam, 4-t-butyl-2-(1-methyl-2-nitroethyl) cyclohexanone, 6,10-Dimethyl-2-undecanoate, Ethyl octadecanoate, 9-Hexadecanoic acid, 2-Buthyl-1-octanol. The presence of these bioactive compounds may be the underlying scientific evidence for the many therapeutic effect of the plant extract.
