Aerva lanata commonly known as “Sunny khur” is widely used in Indian folk medicine for the treatment of various infectious diseases. This study was undertaken to analyze the various bioactive compounds of alcoholic extract of A.lanata using Chromatographic techniques. In this study, fatty acid esters, fatty acid amide, triterpene, diterpene alcohols and phytol were identified as the major chemical groups in the methanol fractions of A.lanata leaf extracts. Their structures were elucidated, on the basis of GC-MS data, D:B-Friedo-B’:A’-neogammacer-5-en-3-ol (3 ß)- (33.60%), Myo-Inositol,4-C-methyl- (26.67%), Benzoic acid, 3,5-bis(1,1-dimehtylethyl)-4-hydroxy- (18.93%), 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, bis(2-methylpropyl) ester (7.73%), n-Hexadecanoic acid (7.73%), Phytol (1.87%) and Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester (1.60%). The results obtained fully indicated that the alcohol extract of A.lanata leaves had the great potential of noble natural medicines.
