ABSTRACT:
Brassica juncea L. is known for its nutrition as well as medicinal importance. Phytochemical profiling was done by analysing ethanolic extracts using gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS), and elemental composition was determined using scanning electron microscope with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM-EDX). Main phytochemicals identified were n-octacosane (28.70 %), neophytadiene (12.73 %), linolenic acid (11.44 %) and oleic acid (6.16 %). Some of the elements detected were nitrogen (4.91%), sulphur (0.68%), potassium (2.71%) and calcium (2.16%).
