Alsiddig Osama, Sufyan Awdelkarim
Phytochemical screening of the active morphological samples is extremely valuable in giving us information about the nature of constituents found in each plant sample. Ficus sycomorus
L (Moraceae) grows wild in tropical Africa and Asia. It is used as a traditional medicine for the treatment of infertility and sterility in humans. Cleome gynandra
is a common, widespread herb with wide range of medicinal uses. The n-hexane chloroform, ethyl acetate, n-butanol and water fractions of the selected plants were investigated for the secondary metabolites including Phenols, Tannins, Flavonoids, Coumarins, Quninous, Alkaloids, Triterpenes, Steroids, Saponins and diterpenes.
