Abstract:
Cayratia pedata is an indigenous medicinal plant commonly known as Birdfoot Grapevine. The leaves of this plant have been used as a traditional medicine for the treatment of ulcers, diarrhea and inflammation. The crude extracts of the plant has anti-microbial, anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory and anti-diarrheal properties. The present study reports on the bioactive principles obtained from Cayratia pedata leaves through extraction, isolation and identification. The phytochemicals screened and quantitative analyses were done by biochemical tests. The chemical composition of the plant leaves extract was resolved by Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectral (GC-MS) analyses. The preliminary analyses reveal the presence of tannins, flavonoids, terpenoids, alkaloids, carbohydrate, saponins, steroids, quinines, phenols, proteins, oils and fats, phytosterols, coumarins and phlobatannins. The GC-MS results, confirmed that the bioactivity of Cayratia pedata depends on several active principles of which have detected thirty five different phytochemicals that belongs to acid, ester, alcohol and ether groups.
