Keywords: Resupinate basidiomycetes, GC–MS, 13-Docosenamide, (Z)-, Tricaproin
The present investigation was carried out to analyze the active constituents present in the ethyle acetate, methanol and hexane extract of Peniophora nuda, a resupinate basidiomycetes. It had shown 60, 9 and 60 major peaks with crude extract of ethyle acetate, methanol and hexane respectively in GC–MS (gas chromatography and mass spectometery) chromatogram. Ethyle acetate extract had shown 29 peaks having area % more than one; 12.88% being the highest occupied by 13-Docosenamide, (Z)-. All the 9 peaks in methanolic extract have area more than 1% among which 49.82% was the highest occupied by Tricaproin. Twenty-eight peaks of hexane extract have shown area % more than 1; 14.46% being the highest occupied by 13-Docosenamide, (Z)-.
