In present study the 25 turmeric germplasm were evaluated for their phytochemical characterization. The total phenolics are secondary byproducts and play a significant role in defense mechanism of plant. Quantification and qualitative evaluation of phenolics was done using Thin layer Chromatography which shows the presence of different phenolic compounds in all turmeric germplasm. The results of TLC of total phenolics from the turmeric germplasm indicated the presence of caffeic acid in all the turmeric germplasm except the germplasm collected from Faizabad. Only one germplasm from Faizabad ie FZ4 show the presence of caffeic acid. The Ferulic acid was found to be present in 5 germplasm of turmeric, o-Caumaric acid also present in 5 germplasm of turmeric and presence of p-caumaric acid is found only in one germplasm of turmeric. Hence the specific turmeric germplasm is found to be suitable for the pharmacological production of these active biomolecules.
