*Mahesh Ummadi, Sirisha Nagala and Raghava Rao Tamanam

ABSTRACT

Oil extracted from Ficus religiosa seed was studied to explore its suitability for ethnomedical uses with a special emphasis on its physiochemical characterization and Gas Chromatography-Mass spectroscopy analysis of seed oil fatty acids. Some of the physiochemical properties were examined and compared with those of standard oils and in particular, any common characteristics with cotton seed oil were evaluated. GC-MS analysis of free fatty acid methyl ester fraction of the Ficus religiosa seed oil reveals Pentadecanoic acid, methyl ester (CAS) methyl laurinate, Silikonfett SE30(Grevels), Methyl ricinoleate, Thiophene 2-carboxylic acid,4,5 dimethyl-3-(1-pyrrolyl) and 1,1,2,2-tetraethyl-Disilane .These findings demonstrated that essential oil of Ficus religiosa seeds was a complex mixture of numerous fatty acids and also contains some bioactive components, thus have great potential to be used as a source for natural health products. In conclusion, Ficus religiosa oil is a natural essential oil and could have therapeutic potential.

Keywords: Physiochemical characterization; Ficus religiosa seed oil; Gas Chromatography-Mass spectroscopy analysis.
