This study was designed to determine the phytocomponents in the methanol and ethanol extracts of leaves of Actinodaphne madraspatana Bedd by Perkin Elmer gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). This investigation was carried out to determine the possible phytocomponents from the methanol and ethanol extracts of leaves of Actinodaphne madraspatana by GC-MS. This analysis revealed that the methanol extract contained six compounds that have been identified mainly as sesquitriterpene lactone compounds and fatty acid ester compounds and ethanol extract contain twenty compounds that have been identified mainly as fatty acid ester, sesquiterpenes, triterpene and steroid. From the results, it is evident that methanol and ethanol extract of leaves of Actinodaphne madraspatana contains various bioactive compounds and is recommended as a plant of phytopharmaceutical importance.
