Camelina sativa is a plant known for its seed oil quantity and high biofuel potential; in addition, this plant has also various phytoconstituents which can act as numerous bioactivities. After the oil removal, excess amount of defatted part collected which can be further used for other activities. So the present investigation was aimed to evaluate the main secondary metabolites and estimation of the chemical constituents present in the defatted seed using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. For this purpose, four polar solvents were used viz. Water, Methanol, IPA and Ethyl Acetate. Total phenolic, Flavonoids and Terpenes were highest when Methanol were used as an extracting solvent. However, Alkaloid content was highest when solvent was IPA. GC MS confirms the presence of thirty compounds in which approximately thirteen compounds were in noticeable amount and were broadly discussed in the manuscript. To check in vitro antioxidant potential of defatted seed DPPH and ABTS methods were used. Study reveals the significance of defatted cake for other activities such as food additives or can be used as a source of novel drugs or can be used in various therapeutic applications.
