Momordica charantia is a very well-known traditional medicinal herb. The current research investigation aimed towards the isolation, characterization and prediction of biological activity spectra of the phytoconstituents from the seeds of Momordica charantia Linn. (Cucurbitaceae). The Ethanolic extract of Momordica charantia seeds led to isolate two new aliphatic alcohols: n-nonatriacontan-19α-ol &n-henetetracontan-19α-ol and four known compounds: n-tetracosane, n-pentacosane, n-pentatriacontane, n-heptatriacontan-15α-ol. These isolated phytomolecules can act as the marker compounds in order to establish the identity, quality and purity of the drug. The observations of the in silico profiling of these compounds shall be very useful for the upcoming reaearchers for establishing them as pharmacologically active moieties.
