PHYTOCHEMICAL EVALUATION OF MONOCOT GRASS KYLLINGA TRICEPS ROTTB.
Kyllinga triceps rottb. A monocot perennial herb found in various parts of India is traditionally used in vitiated conditions pitta and vata, hyperdipsia, fever, liver disorders, verminosis, cough, splenopathy, diabetes and dermatitis. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the phytochemical and pharmacognostical study of ignored ayurvedic medicinal herb kyllinga triceps rottb. The plant is monocot grass belongs to the family cyperaceae, commonly used in various ayurvedic preparation’s and called musta. In various ayurvedic texts it is also known as nirvishi. Many species of family cyperaceae resembles the original drug thus the present study will help in identification and collection of original plant. The study includes identification and characterization of chemical component and preliminary phytochemical screening of the plant extract. The generated information of the present study will provide data which are helpful in the correct identification and authentication of medicinal plant kyllinga triceps rottb. and may help in prevention of its adulteration.
Keywords: Kyllinga triceps rottb., phytochemical, cyperaceae, adulteration, ayurevedic.
