Annona muricata L. is conventionally used to treat various ailments. This plant shows varied medicinally valuable effects like anti-cancer, anti-hermitic, anti-spasmodic,anti-convulsant,anti-pyretic, sedative, hypotensive, digestive, anti-diabetes, anti-microbial,anti- inflammatory, anti- dysenteric, andanti- rheumatic effects. The phytochemical qualitative analysis of Annona muricata leaves exhibits the presence of carbohydrates, tannins, saponins, alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, quinines, phenols, terpenoids, coumarins, anthraquinones, steroids, phlobatannins and anthracyanine.The GC-MS analysis report shows the 22 compounds in the leaf ethanolic and hexane extract of Annona muricata by comparing retention time and interpretation of their mass spectra.
