Root exudates were obtained from three mangrove species, viz. Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, Excoecaria agallocha, and Heritiera fomes. Spot tests revealed the presence of, presumably, phenolic compounds in the exudates. Paper chromatography revealed two spots each for B. gymnorrhiza and H. fomes and a single spot for E. agallocha. GC-MS analysis suggested the presence of aminopyrine, palmitic acid, stearic acid, di-n-propyl ether, and 2,5-anhydrogluconic acid in B. gymnorrhiza exudates, aminopyrine and palmitic acid in E. agallocha exudates, and aminopyrine, palmitic acid, and 2,5-anhydrogluconic acid in H. fomes exudates.
