The present work undertook the gas chromatography mass spectroscopic analysis of one herbal plant Rhycosia minima, which is reported to have medicinal properties such as anthelmintic and antioxidant, anti-nociceptive, anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory. The plant was collected from the water logged area of Chengalpattu, Tamil Nadu, India and the ethyl acetate extract of the whole plant was obtained. The extract was subjected to gas chromatography mass spectroscopy after due processing. The results indicated some molecules such as 3,4-di-o-methyl-L-arabinopyranose, thiocyanic acid, ethyl ester, 2-isopropenyl-4a,8-dimethyl-1,2,3,4,4a,5,6,7-octahydronaphthalene, 4-(2,4-dimethylcyclohex-3-enyl)but-3-en-2-one, n-hexadecanoic acid, methyl 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoate, tert-butyldimethylsilyl ether, 7-methyl-z-tetradecen-1-ol acetate, gamma tocopherol, cholesterol, pregna-5,8(9),16-triene-3 beta-ol-20-one benzoate, stigmasterol, beta-sitosterol, beta-amyrin, betulin, dl-alpha-tocopherol, hexadecanoic acid, 1-(hydroxymethyl)-1,2-ethanediyl ester, hexadecanoic acid, 1-(hydroxymethyl) etc. Which have medicinal properties supportive of the plants role as an important herbal medicine?.
