Abstract:
Phytochemical exploration is an important step in the finding of bioactive composite present in medicinal flora. The Butea monosperma 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 and glycosides in the flower of the plant extracts. The presence of various bioactive compounds confirms the application of B. Monosperma for various ailments by traditional practitioners. However, isolation of individual phytochemical constituents may proceed to find a novel drug.
