ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF SOME PHYTOCHEMICAL COMPOUNDS FROM THE METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF SOLANUM TORVUM SWARTZ FRUITSAbstract
Solanum torvum Sw. belonging to the family Solanaceae is locally called as pea eggplant, sundai and cherry egg-plant in India. The fruits of Solanum torvum Sw. used to cure diseases of the diuretic, malaria, stomach aches, problems with the spleen, treat coughs, improve the eyesight, treats headaches which attribute many properties in Ayurveda, siddha, unani and local health traditions. The purpose of this study is to isolate and characterize the STL, STB and STD from the fruits of Solanum torvum Sw. The isolation was done using column chromatography using gradient elution with different mobile phase. Structural elucidation of the isolated compounds was established out on the basis of elemental analysis and spectroscopic evidence of IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectra. The purification of the isolated compounds by HPLC and HPTLC was carried out. On the basis of the spectral data and chemical reactions, the compounds have been established as STL, STB, and STD are being reported from this plant for the first time.
