Effectual qualitative chemical evaluation of Euphorbia neriifolia Linn. by using fluorescence analysis
Objective -Plants contain numerous biologically active compounds, many of these have been shown to exhibit therapeutic and antimicrobial properties and therefore they were in use as antimicrobial drugs in traditional medicines. Euphorbia neriifolia Linn. belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae. Assessment of medication implies affirmation of its personality and assurance of its quality and virtue and recognition of nature of debasement. Throughout the years the nature and level of assessment of rough medications has experienced an efficient changes. Hence, in the present study an attempt has been made for effectual qualitative evaluation of dried powdered leaves and stem of Euphorbia neriifolia Linn. by fluorescence analysis.
Design & Intervention- The dried powdered sample of Euphorbia neriifolia Linn. leaves and stem has been used to perform fluorescence analysis under the visible day light and UV light of short wavelength (254 nm) and long wavelength (365 nm) for their characteristic colour.
Main outcome measures- The ultra violet light creates fluorescence in numerous common items, which don't noticeably fluoresce in sunshine. In the event that the substances themselves are not fluorescent, they may frequently be changed over into fluorescent subordinates or disintegration items by applying diverse reagents. The hues created by these reagents speak to the nearness of dynamic constituents.
Results- The fluorescence character of any powdered character of any powdered medication is exceptionally particular and supportive distinctive highlights for the assurance of a medication.
Conclusion- The dried powder and herbal extracts of Euphorbia neriifolia Linn. leaves and stem showed varied fluorescence character which is an essential parameter for standardization of herbs.
