Abstract: Wide range of technologies are available for the extraction of active components from medicinal plants. Microwaves are used for extraction of phytoconstituents from plant material because of impressive research interest and potential. Conventional extraction techniques are time consuming and require more solvent and most of them are not suitable for thermolabile constituents. The microwave extraction techniques were found to be better than conventional methods as they require less time, consume less solvent. Significant features of the present study is that the microwave extraction method was successful in extracting various phytoconstituent. The two methods of extraction for phytoconstituent are compared in terms of no. of bands generated on TLC by individual phytochemical groups.
