Their structures were elucidated, on the basis of GC-MS data . (2R,3R)-4-methyl-2,3-epoxypentan-1-ol(9.26%),1-Cyclohexyl-2,2-difluoro-4-(1,3-dioxolan-2-yl)-4-iodobutanone(9.26%),9-(Tetrahydropyran-2”-yl)-6-[2′-phenyl-‘,4′,5’,6”-tetrapropylphenyl]-9H-purine(9.26%) these different active phytochemicals have been found to possess a wide range of activities.
