CHARACTERIZATION AND ANALYSIS OF BIOACTIVE OF DIGERA ARVENSIS BY FTIRAbstract
The present study is focused on exploring the chemical components of the leaves, stem, root, and seeds of potential weed Digera arvensis. The plant has high nutritional value and therapeutic significance with prospective pharmacological activities. The various parts of the plants, i.e., leaves, stems, roots and seeds, were extracted using polar solvent ethanol. The preliminary phytochemical investigation of ethanoic extract of the plant parts showed the presence of primary and secondary metabolites like carbohydrates, reducing sugars, proteins, polyphenols, glycosides, alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids and terpenoids. The various spectroscopic methods reveal the presence of phytoconstituents, while the FTIR spectroscopic method was carried out on the ethanolic extracts of all the parts of Digera arvensis the confirming the presence of functional groups of the phytoconstituents. The FTIR analysis confirmed the presence of O-H, C-O, N-H, C-C, C-H, CO-O-CO and CH3 functional groups of the polyphenolic compounds.
