To determine various phytoconstituents present in some ornamental flowers of Saurashtra region. Methods:
Qualitative phytochemical analysis and fluorescence analysis was done by standard methods.rnResults:
Different flowers showed various levels of phytoconstituents like alkaloids, flavonoids, cardiac glycosides, triterpenes, phlobatanins, tannins, saponins and steroids in different amounts. Maximum amount of flavonoids and triterpenes were present in different flowers followed by tannins and phlobatanins. Saponins were absent in all. Conclusions:
The results of the present study suggest that even ornamental flowers have phytoconstituents that can act as a source of natural antimicrobics or antioxidants and can be used for the development of plant based drugs.
