Hypnea musciformis (red seaweed) was investigated for the richness of its bioactive compounds. The ethanolic extract was subjected to GC-MS analysis revealed 26 chemical constituents. Seaweed exhibits potentially bioactive major constituents like n-hexadecanoic acid-tetradecanoic acid, oleic acid-9-octadecenoic acid-6-octadecenoic acid, hexadecanoic acid-ethyl ester-ethyl tridecanoate and octadecanoic acid. Further biochemical and mineral analyses presented the phenolic content, total…
