The investigation was carried out to determine the phytocompounds of ethanol extract of Nothapodytes nimmoniana stem. GC-MS analysis of ethanol extract was performed using a Perkin-Elmer GC clarus 500 system and Gas Chromatograph interfaced to a Mass Spectometer (GC-MS) equipped with a Elite-1,fused silica capillary column(30mm0.25mm 101Mdf, composed of 100% Di methyl poly siloxene). Interpretation on mass spectrum of GC-MS was conducted using the database of National Institute standard and Technology (NIST). Fourteen compounds were identified. The prevailing compounds were Acetic acid, 3-hydroxy-6-isopropenyl- 4, 8a-dimethyl-1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8a- octahydronaphthalen-2-yl ester (30.79%), -D-Glucopyranose, 4-O--D-galactopyranosyl- (23.96%), 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, diisooctyl ester (9.99%), Dodecanoic acid, 3-hydroxy- (5.93%), Urs-12-en-24-oic acid, 3-oxo-, methyl ester, (+)- (5.64%), Isopropyl Palmitate (4.84%), n-Hexadecanoic acid (4.26%), 9, 12, 15-Octadecatrienoic acid, (Z,Z,Z)- (3.28%), Tetradecanoic acid (3.29%) and E-2-Tetradecen-1-ol (1.59%).
