Author(s): Milan Hait, Puja Thakur Sisodiya and Ashutosh Patel
Abstract: Phytochemical evaluation is a valuable step in the finding of bioactive composite present in medicinal plants. The Peltophorum pterocarpum flower extracts and its solvent fractionates was subjected to preliminary phytochemical screening using standard phytochemical tests. The aim of the present study was to investigate the presence of phytochemicals. Soxhlet apparatus was used for the organic solvent extraction. These investigations revealed the presence of flavonoids, tannins, saponins, carbohydrates, terpenoids, phenols, curcumins and glycosides in the flower of the plant extracts. The presence of various bioactive compounds confirms the application of P. pterocarpum for various ailments by traditional practitioners. However, isolation of individual phytochemical constituents may proceed to find a novel drug.
