Objective: Investigation of biochemical components presents in the Dolichandrone falcata flowers by using GC-MS (Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectroscopy). Methods: The flowers of Dolichandrone falcata were collected, dried in shade and converted to the powder form. This powder is then extracted through Soxhlation method using methanol and chloroform solvents differently for GC-MS analysis. The concentrated extract is then analysed by GC-MS technique and the various secondary metabolites were identified using NIST library search. Results: The result shows the presence of different phytoconstituents which includes fatty acids, phenols, glycosides, ketones etc. having the properties such as allelochemic, anti-mutagenic, anti-septic, antibacterial etc. Conclusion: Dolichandrone falcata flowers contain the various phytoconstituent that can be useful in different fields like pharmaceuticals; perfume, drug development etc. and plant can be recommended as a plant of phytopharmaceutical importance.
