Phytochemical analysis of Urtica dioica leaves by fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry

Phytochemicals are chemical compounds formed during the plants normal metabolic processes. These chemicals are often referred to as secondary metabolites. The objective of this research was to determine the chemical composition of leaves extract from methanol. The phytochemical compound screened by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method. Fifteen bioactive phytochemical compounds were identified in the...
