Gmelina arborea Roxb. is belong to the family of Verbenaceae, have been used for a long time in traditional medicine to treat a wide range of medical ailments. Through the use of the FTIR spectroscopy technique, the objective of this research is to investigate the effects of the extracts of Gmelina arborea leaves obtained from methanol, hydro alcohol, aqueous, hexane, and ethyl acetate. FTIR, which stands for "Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy," is an analytical method that is both rapid and nondestructive. In order to determine the usual peak values and the functional groups that are present in Gmelina arborea leaf extracts, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used on a spectrophotometer system. FTIR testing confirmed that each extract did, in fact, contain a variety of functional groups that were biologically active.
