|Abstract:||Alafia barteri is one of the medicinal plants of importance belonging to the family Apocynaceae. The aim of this study is to identify the bioactive phytochemical components in the different extracts of A. barteri leaves and roots using Gas chromatography-Mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. Qualitative and quantitative determination of the different bioactive compounds from aqueous and ethanol leaf extracts of A. barteri revealed different types of high and low molecular weight chemical entities with varying quantities present in each of the extracts. The importance of identifying the most abundant bioactive phytochemicals is to induce into pharmacological activities for remediation of illness such as malaria, inflammation.|
