Author(s): Shilpi Patel and Madhavi Adhav
Abstract: Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Linn. is one of the important medicinal as well as ornamental plant, belongs to family Malvaceae. It is commonly called Gurhal. The extracts (flower and leaves) are largely used in the treatment of various diseases. The phytochemical screening of ethanolic extracts of four Morphotypes of this plant species are known to contain–Flavonoids, glycosides, phytosterols, terpenoids, phenolic compound, carbohydrates, proteins, tannins, gum and mucilage. Alkaloids, saponins, fixed oil and fats were totally absent. Anthoquinone present in all flower extracts, but absent in all leaf extracts of morphotypes. The result showed that there were no differences in their phytochemical constituents. The presence of flavonoids, glycosides, phytosterols, terpenoids, phenolic compound and tannins are mainly contributed in the medicinal utility of the plant. Since, these constituents are common in all the four tested morphotypes, any one of them can be used as a substitute for others.
