Abstract:
The objective of present work was to evaluate the qualitative and quantitative assessment of Nerium Indicum Mill, Artocarpus Heterophyllus Lam, Murraya Koenigii Linn and Punica Granatum Linn extract for the natural product present in them. These plants were having the rich source of alkaloid, glycoside, tannins, carbohydrates, saponin, flavonoids, proteins and amino acids and were used as anti-diabetic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, anti-malarial and having wound healing potential. Extract of all four plants has been separated by the process of Soxhlet extraction by using 70% ethanol. The extract of Nerium Indicum mill, Artocarpus Heterophyllus Lam, Murraya Koenigii Linn, and Punica Granatum Linn was evaluated for qualitative and quantitative measurement of alkaloid, glycoside, tannins, carbohydrates, saponins, flavonoids, proteins and amino acids content. Different solvents was used includes petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, ethyl alcohol, distilled water and 70% ethanol for the extraction all four plants. Preliminary phyto-chemical screening was performed for extracts of Nerium Indicum Mill (NIL), Artocarpus Heterophyllus Lam (AHP), Murraya Koenigii Linn (MKL) and Punica Granatum Linn. (PGB). Identification test on extracts was shown the presence of alkaloid, glycoside, tannins, carbohydrates, saponin, flavonoids, proteins, volatile oil, steroids and amino acids content. All results denote that extracts of these four Indian plants having a rich source of phyto-constituents of interest.
