Cynodon dactylon or Arugampul is considered as a sanctified grass in Tamil Nadu, India and used in religious offerings. Its health and nutritional benefits are well documented but very little about its bioactive compounds. Objective of the present study is to determine the bioactive compounds present in the aqueous extract of Cynodon dactylon, using GC/MS as a tool. Hot aqueous extract of Cynodon dactylon was analyzed for its bioactive compounds using gas chromatograph of JEOL GC MATE II and mass spectrometer of quadruple double focusing mass analyzer. Eight bioactive compounds were detected from hot aqueous extract of Cynodon dactylon through GC-MS analysis. The compounds were Alanine, 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (ZZ), n-Hexadecanoic acid, Oleic acid, Oxiraneoctanoic acid, 3-octly-, methyl ester, trans-, Phytol, Coumarine, 3-(2,4 -dinitrophenyl), 2-Cyclohexen-3,6-diol-1one, 2-tetradecanoyl-.
