    Objective: The present study deals with the preliminary phytochemical and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) analysis of different leaf extracts of one medicinal Carissa carandas. Materials and Methods: The phytochemical and GC– MS study of one medicinal plant, C. carandas was done as per standard protocols to correlate its medicinal activity with the biomolecules present in it. Results: The methanol extract of C. carandas indicated the presence of flavonoids, tannins, saponins, and steroids, whereas flavonoids, alkaloids, saponins, and steroids were present in hexane fraction. Alkaloids, saponins, proteins, and triterpenoids were present in aqueous extract. The GC–MS analysis of hexane and aqueous leaf extracts indicated the presence of some important biomolecules such as pentadecanoic acid, 14-methyl-, methyl ester, 9,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid, (Z, Z, Z)-, Phytol, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, Squalene, Octasiloxane, 1,1,3,3,5,5,7,7,9,9,11,11,13,13,15,15- hexadecamethyl, beta.-Sitosterol, 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid, 2-[(trimethylsilyl)oxy]-1-[[(trimethylsilyl)oxy]methyl] ethyl ester, (Z, Z, Z)-Acetamide, N-methyl-N-[4-(3-hydroxypyrrolidinyl)-2-butynyl]-, 5,8,11,14-Eicosatetraenoic acid, methyl ester, (all-Z)-, and 6-Octadecenoic acid, methyl ester, (Z). Conclusions: The presence of these molecules augurs well with the medicinal properties attributed to this plant ethnobotanical. Further work is in progress toward understanding this plant’s role as a medicine.
