The leaves of Sesamum alatum Thonn. (were collected from Salem-Coimbatore Highways near Perundurai Bye-Pass road, Tamil Nadu, India, shade dried and powdered. The leaf powder was extracted with ethanol by cold extraction method and the final crude extract was stored until use. Ethanol extract of Sesamum alatum leaves was analyzed with the help of GC-MS analyzer (GC Clarius 500 Perkin Elmer) for the phytochemical compounds. Interpretation on mass spectrum GC-MS was done using the database of National Institute Standard and Technology (NIST). Among the various chemical compounds found, majority of the phytochemicals are cyanide compounds. Sulfathiozole was one among the phytochemicals found in the ethanolic leaf extracts of Sesamum alatum, which is a strong antibacterial agent as confirmed by the previous studies.
