PHARMACOGNOSTICAL AND PHYTOCHEMICAL INVESTIGATION OF FUMARIA PARVIFLORA LAM.Abstract
The present paper deals with the pharmacognostical and phytochemical investigation of Fumaria parviflora Lam. whole plant. The qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analysis was carried out for the important bioactive constituents present in Fumaria parviflora Lam. (whole plant) in its Hydroalcoholic extract. The preliminary phytochemical analysis showed the presence of alkaloids, phenols, flavonoids, carbohydrates, protein, steroids, and sulphate. The total phenolic content (TPC) and the total flavonoid content (TFC) were also determined from the extrapolation of calibration curves which were prepared by using Tannic acid and Quercetin respectively as standard solutions. The results indicated the presence of phenols and flavonoids in considerable amounts. Thus, the study revealed the presence of various bioactive constituents in F. parviflora which could be exploited for their potential applications for medicinal purposes.
