PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING ON THE AERIAL PART OF THE LUFFA ECHINATA LINN.Abstract
The present work deals with development and standardization of phytochemical screening for quantification of ethanolic extract of aerial part of the Luffa echinata Linn. The scientific parameter is necessary to identify the exact plant material and to find its quality and purity. The present study deals with various, physical evaluation and preliminary phytochemical screening of various successive extracts such as qualitative chemical analysis. HPTLC of extract shows the seven different peaks confirming that the seven compounds present in ethanolic extract of Luffa echinata. The alkaloidal content of aerial part of the plant has been determined. These studies indicated the possible information for correct identification and standardization of this plant material.
