Phytochemical study of some medicinal plants in Rajasthan


Narbahadur Singh Baradwal and Dr. Tahira Begum


Phytochemicals are highly effective in terms of medicine. There is a constant and urgent need to create new pharmaceutical compounds with novel chemical structures and modes of action due to the worrisome increase in the incidence of new diseases. The qualitative analysis is extremely important for identifying the phytochemical elements present in medicinal plants. Plants have therapeutic value because they contain certain bioactive components. The goal of the current study was to identify the phytoconstituents present in leaf extracts from a variety of medicinal plants including Cocculus hirsutus, Solanum nigrum, Datura innoxia, Cuscuta reflexa and Salanum surattense. Plants' leaves were gathered from their natural habitats, cleaned, dried by air, and then ground. Using the Soxhlet apparatus with ethanol, the solvent extracts of the different leaves were created. Alkaloids, Steroids, Flavonoids and Glycosides were estimate qualitatively by following the standard methods.
