Abstract

Raphia taedigera seed is an underutilized seed with several bioactive compounds that have the tendency to regulate metabolic processes to promote the healthy living. In this research study, sixteen bioactive compounds were identified in the Raphia taedigera seed oil using Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). GC-MS revealed the presence of Hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester (0.31%), n-Hexadecanoic acid (7.15%), trans-13-Octadecenoic acid methyl esters (0.91%), Oleic acid (10.83), Octadecanoic acid (10.23%), cis-13-Octadecenoic acid (2.75%), 6-Octadecenoic (3.26%), Cis-vaccenic acid (1.94%), Palmitoyl chloride (2.82%), Trans-13-Octadecenoic acid (1.78), 9, 12-Octadecadienoic acid (1.54%), 4, 4, 6a, 6b, 8a, 11, 11, 14b-Octamethyl-1, 4, 4a, 5, 6, 6a, 6b, 7, 8, 8a, 9, 10, 11, 12, 12a, 14, 14a, 14b-octadecahydro-2H-picen-3-one (7.29%), 3-Methoxymethoxy-2, 3-dimethylundec-1-ene (8.88%), Cyclohexanecarboxylic acid (2.00%), undecylester, Beta.-Amyrin (8.31%) and Lup-20(29)-en-3-one (27.28%). The results show revealed the potential of the seed oil as an anti-inflammatory, anti-leishmanial, anti-cancer, antioxidant, antifungal and hypocholesterolemic.
