Cress (Lepidium sativum), sometimes referred to as garden cress to distinguish it from similar plants also referred to as cress (from old Germanic cresso which means sharp, spicy), is a rather fast-growing, edible herb. The objective of this study was analysis of the secondary metabolite products. Bioactives are chemical compounds often referred to as secondary metabolites. Ninteeth bioactive compounds were identified in the methanolic extract of Lepidium sativum. The identification of bioactive chemical compounds is based on the peak area, retention time molecular weight and molecular formula. GC-MS analysis of Lepidium sativum revealed the existence of the Glycerin, Monoethanolamine, 1-Deoxy-d-mannitol, 1-Nitro-2-propanol, 2-Butanamine, (S)-, Furfural, Allyl isothiocyanate, Paromomycin, 2-Hydroxy-2-(5-methylfuran-2-yl)1phenylethanone, 3, 6-Diazahomoadamantan-9-one Hydrazone, 2, 3, 4-Trimethoxycinnamic acid, 2-Naphthalenol, 2, 3, 4, 4a, 5, 6, 7-octahydro-1, 4a-dimethyl-7-(2)-, cis-Vaccenic acid, 9-Octadecenamide, γ-Tocopherol, Phthalic acid, decyl oct-3-yl ester, Ergosta-5, 22-dien-3-ol, acetate, (3β, 22E)-, Campesterol and Cholest-5-en-3-ol, 24-propylidene-, (3β). GC-MS is widely used in pharmaceutical industries for analytical research and development, quality control, quality assurance, production, pilot plants departments for active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), bulk drugs and formulations.
