Abstract

Tamarindus indica var. rhodocarpa (red tamarind) unripe fruits extract was subjected to GC/MS/MS analysis and identified 45 bioactive components by matching mass spectra with mass spectrum libraries. The major compounds present were 7, 9-ditert-butyl-1-oxaspiro[4.5]deca-6,9-diene-2,8-dione (77.22%) and Caryophyllene (16.01%). The former compound found to have antioxidant activity while the later reported to have antimicrobial and anticancer activity. Among the identified compounds most of the compounds were reported to have antimicrobial, anticancer and antioxidant activity. Profiling these phytochemicals may widen the industrial application of this fruit.
