Prachi Tiwari, Pooja Gond and Satyendra Koshale
The qualitative study of Achyranthes Aspera reveals that the presence of number of secondary metabolites. Active component of different parts of Achyranthes aspera was extracted by two methods i.e. shaking and boiling. As plant extract contain several secondary metabolites so the extract was used for different test. Test was performed using both extract prepared by shaking and boiling method and documented. Steroid was found to be absent in all extracts prepared by using solvents (methanol, ethanol, acetone, water and diethyl ether) by both methods. Tannin is present in shoot and root of several extracts isolated by different solvent using shaking as well as boiling method. Terpenoid is absent in all part of the plant. Alkaloid is present in methanolic, ethanolic and water extracts of both methods. Phenol was absent in all extract made by shaking method and present in extract using methanol, ethanol and water as solvent and using boiling method. Leaf and inflorescence contain flavanoid. Saponin was present in root and stem parts by shaking method where as it was found in leaf and inflorescence extract by boiling method. Coumarin was found in all extract except diethyl ether. The phytochemical studies with solvent i.e. methanol, ethanol, acetone, diethyl ether and water extracts of various parts of the plant by shaking and boiling method showed to possess secondary metabolites. Medicinal plants have received great attention as potential antiperoxidative agent. Plant products are also known to their protective effects by scavenging free radicals and modulating carcinogen detoxification and antioxidant defence system. The qualitative study of Achyranthes Aspera reveals that the presence of number of secondary metabolites.
