The present investigation was carried out to determine the bioactive compounds present in entire plant of Gomphrena decumbens Jacq. By GC-MS analysis in the ethanolic extract of this plant, 28 bioactive compounds were identified. The major bioactive compounds are 1-Docosanol (36.93%); A: D-Neooleana-12, 14-diene, (3. xi. 5a) (25.27%); 9, 12, 15-Octadecatrienole acid (4.94%); Cholest-5-en-3-ol (3a) (4.46%); Stigmast- 5- en- 3-ol, (3a, 24S) (2. 98%); 9-octadecenoic acid (Z) (2. 92%); Lupan- 3- ol, acetate (2. 72%); Hexadeconoic acid (2.53%); Fucoxanthin (2.38%); Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (1.91%); Phytol (1.39%); 4-chlorophenyl tert-pentyl sulphate (1.34%) and Ethyl9,12,15octadecatrienoate (1.11%).
