Phytochemical analysis of leaf extract of the medicinal plants
Laxmi 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. To identify the phytoconstituents in the leaf extracts of Three different medicinal plants, including Cassia fistula, Acacia nilotica, and Balanites aegyptiaca, the current investigation was carried out. Three different plant species leaves were collected from their native habitats, washed, and air dried before being crushed. The solvent extracts of the various leaves were produced using the Soxhlet equipment and ethanol. By using the accepted techniques, alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, and terpenoids were qualitatively estimated. Alkaloids, Steroids, Tannin and Saponin were present in all plants. Terpenoids absent in all plants. Flavonoids present in all plants except Balanites aegyptiaca.
