ABSTRACT
In this study, the bioactive components of Aloe vera leaves have been evaluated using GC/MS. The chemical compositions of the n-hexane extract of Aloe vera were investigated using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. GC/MS analysis of n-hexane extract of Aloe vera revealed the existence of twenty six bioactive compounds. The results of this study offer a platform of using Aloe vera as herbal drug for cancer studies.
