Abstract:

Phoenix Dactylifera L. is a dioeceous plant belonging to the Arcacaea family which means it has separate male and female saplings. In the present study, ethyl acetate extracts of male and female date palm leaves are subjected to GC-MS analysis so as to identify phytochemicals present in it. These phytochemicals were then subjected to quantum mechanical evaluation. Quantum mechanical parameters such as ionization potential, electron affinity, energy gap, global hardness, global softness, electronegativity and electron back donation were evaluated. The study concluded that the corrosion inhibition potential of male date palm extract is due to synergistic action of hexadecanoic acid, cis-7-Dodecen-1-yl acetate, 9,12,15-Octadecatrienoic acid and Paramethaqualone while that of female date palm extract is due to n-hexadecanoic acid, octadec-9-enoic acid, Beta – sitosterol and Alpha-amyrin.
