In this study, the bioactive compounds of Pila virens have been evaluated using GC-MS. The experimental approach consists of a systematic investigation about the action of crude or purified extract on physiological preparations or whole animals to outline the profile of their biological activities and mechanism of action. The present work has been undertaken for isolation and purification of bioactive compounds and action of the extracts of the snail for its biological activity. The chemical compositions of the whole animal methanol extract of Pila virens were investigated using GC SHIMADZU QP2010 Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. GC-MS analysis of Pila virens whole animal methanol extract revealed the existence of the compound Benzaldehyde, Benzene,1,3-Bis[1,1-Dimethylethyl]- [14.573], Phenol, 2,4-Bis[1,1-Dimethylethyl]- [21.337] Hexadecanoic Acid and Methyl Ester [30.613]. The present study indicated that, Pila virens extract is a potential source of novel bioactive compounds. Studies on the freshwater snail P. virens of lower anaicut reservoir is scanty and the present study on P. virens is the first GC- MS work on Indian Ampullariidae.
