Author(s): Thooyavan G and Karthikeyan J
Abstract: Ethnomedicinal plant Butea monosperma seeds were analyzed for the presence of biologically active constituents. The preliminary phytochemical studies and quantitative analysis of alkaloids, phenol and flavonids were performed. The observations of results shows maximum number of phytoconstituents were present in methanol seed extract. These extract was further subjected to TLC (Thin layer chromatography), GC-MS (Gas chromatography and mass spectrum) analysis. About 35 different compounds were identified with GCMS analysis. Anthelmintic compounds such as Benzothiazole, Milbimycin B were present along with some of the compounds with varied nature of action like antioxidant, antibacterial and anticancer activities, further studies on in vitro and in vivo will reveal the exact nature of the compounds.
