Since from the past the phytochemicals identified from different plants plays a key role in treating human disorders.In this context, reviving the volatile compounds present in different solvents like methanol, hexane and ethyl acetate extract of Ziziphus jujuba fruit has been performed. The Hexane, Methanol and Ethyl acetate extracts of Ziziphus jujuba fruit was filtered and the compounds present in the above extracts were identified using GC – MS. The derivatives of fatty acids like 9,12-octadecadienoic acid, 9-octadecenoic acid, Eicosanoic acid, Octadecanoic acid and Tetradecanoic acid and some volatile compounds like 7,9-di-tert-butyl-1-oxaspiro(4,5), Eicosane, Hexatriacontane, Methyl stearate and phenol were found to be common in all the solvents. This serves as pool proof for its pharmacological activities from the ancient research work carried out by different researchers. Thus the present study was carried out to identify the biologically active compoundsfrom different solvents of Ziziphus jujuba fruit.
