PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING ON THE STEM BARK OF ANTHOCEPHALUS CADAMBA (ROX B.) MIQ.Abstract
The present work deals with development and standardization of phytochemical screening for quantification of methanolic extract of medicinal plant stem bark of Anthocephalus cadamba (Roxb.)Miq. 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 and different spectroscopic study were carried out and the parameters were reported. HPTLC of extract shows the seven different peaks confirming that the seven compounds present in methanolic extract of Anthocephalus cadamba. The alkaloidal content of stem bark of the title plant has been determined. These studies indicated the possible information for correct identification and standardization of this plant material.
