Coriandrum sativum; GC-MS analysis, Soxhlation, maceration


Coriandrum sativum Linn [Family Apiceae] is a medicinal herb used in the treatment of various disease and disorders. The
present investigation was carried out to determine the change in the oil composition of the chloroform extract of C.sativum
fruits by two different method of extraction Viz., Soxhlation and maceration using GC-MS technique. The analysis revealed
that by Soxlation method, a total of 29 compounds were obtained with major constituents as E-2-decenol [15.25 %] ,
dodecanoic acid [10.28 %], tetradecenol [9.96 %], E-2- dodecanol [9.74 %], undecane[7.23 %] and undecane [4.36 %]
whereas maceration method yielded 18 compounds with major constituents as tetradecanal[23.44 %], n-octadecanol[19.66
%], tetradecenol [4.66 %], dodecanoic acid [3.08 %], -2-tridecenal [3.70 %] and undecanal [3.18 %]. The analysis
concludes that soxhlation method is better than maceration technique.
