Ichnocarpus frutescens (Apocynaceae) are generally known as Krishn sariva in Hindi, Kali Sariva in Sanskrit, a large, evergreen, red woody climber, native to India, Java, China, Ceylon, South Asia, Northern, Australia and found in ascending to an altitude of 4000 ft. Different tribes of India are used this plant as a substitute for Indian Sarsaparilla (Hemidesmus Indicus) it has been used conventionally in diverse ailments of human beings that is headache, wound, fever, tongue, ulcers, cramps, night blindness, stomach pain, bone, fracture, skin infection, diabetes, liver disorder, as an alternative, tonic, diuretic and diaphoretic, Pharmacologically plant shows Antiobesity, analgesic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, skeletal muscle relaxant, hepatoprotective, antitumor. The present study has aimed to identify the Phyto-substance present in Ichnocarpus frutescens using GC-MS analysis. The root part was extracted by maceration in which we have taken 70% Ethyl alcohol and 30% of distilled water. The phyto-components of Hydroalcoholic extract were identified by GC-MS investigation and eight were identified by GC-MS investigation and found eight numbers of phyto-components. Phyto- constituents of the extracts were D-Ribo-Hexose, 2, 6-dideoxy-3-O-methyl-, Diethyl Phthalate, Desulphosingrin, 3-O-Methyl-d-glucose, d-Mannose, Ethyl Oleate, Hexadecanoic acid, 2 Hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl) ethyl ester, Octadecanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-1-(Hydroxymethyl) ethyl ester. This study is the major characterization of the phyto-components of plant data that indicates the hydro-alcoholic extract has remarkable activities.
