PHYTOCHEMICAL INVESTIGATION AND QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF FLAVONOID AND PHENOLIC CONTENTS OF THE ROOT, STEM AND LEAVES OF TEPHROSIA PURPUREA LINN
Herbal drugs are traditionally used in various parts of the world to cure different diseases. The purpose of present study is to characterize phytoconstituents in the various part of Tephrosia purpurea. The root, stem and leaves of Tephrosia purpurea were washed, air dried and then powdered. The aqueous and ethanolic extracts of various part of Tephrosia purpurea were used for the phytochemical investigation to find out the qualitative and quantitative phytochemical constituents in the plant. The result of the phytochemical analysis of Tephrosia purpurea showed presence or absence in addition to quantitative (mg/100mg) contents of flavonoid and Phenol in the plant.Present study will help to identify the different parts of the plant from which higher quantities of the phytochemical can be derived and for the development of new herbal drugs from Tephrosia purpurea.
Keywords: Phytoconstituents, Phytochemical, Tephrosia purpurea, Aqueous ethanolic extract, Flavonoid, Phenol.
