Report Abstract / Summary:

The volatile components of Citrullus colocynthis fruit, which were isolated by simultaneous steam distillation/solvent extraction with petroleum ether (40-50ºC, 75 ml), diethyl ether (75ml) and ethanol (0.5ml), were identified by a combination of retention indices and GC/MS. 98% of peak area of volatile compounds detected from the isolate of fruit pulp. Seventeen constituents were identified and divided into five classes viz., alcohols, ketones, epoxy compounds, hydrocarbons and an acid. 2-Methyl, 4-heptanone (48%) and 3-Methyl, 2-heptanone (12.88%), Trimethylsilyl methanol (9.08%) and 1-propoxy pentane (6.49%) were found to be the major constituents. Further isolation and biological screening will be providing the therapeutic potential of the compounds.
