Fourier Transform Infrared (Ft-Ir) Spectroscopic Analysis of Spirulina Fusiformis

G. Theivandran, S. Mohamed Ibrahim, M. Murugan

Spirulina have been recorded in the region of FT-IR spectra in 3428-3320 cm-1 to 620-490 cm-1 in the different frequency ranges. In the present study, observation of the total protein, lipid, glycogen and amino acid content was identifying of the Spirulina. The different frequency ranges and their different functional groups are analyzed during the study period. Spirulina having essential vitamins like Vitamin A (in the form of β -carotene), Vitamin B12. It is also a very rare source of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) an essential fatty acid. Moreover Spirulina is a good source of phytochemical. Spirulina has potential benefits in the areas of immunomodulation, anti-cancer activity, anti-microbial activity, biochemical, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection, cardiovascular health, cellular protection, detoxification from toxicants and drugs probiotic effects.
