ABSTRACT

Thespesia populnea L. is a medicinally important plant which is used to treat different types of diseases, especially skin diseases. The present research work is aimed to screen the phytochemicals from leaf extracts of Thepesia populnea. Leaf powder of Thespesia was dissolved in different solvents viz., water, methanol, chloroform, acetone, ethyl acetate and petroleum ether and subjected to screen for secondary metabolites. Results revealed the presence of saponins, steroids, phenols, flavonoids, terpenoids, alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, reducing sugars, tannins. In the present investigation, the water and methanol extracts yielded more number of phytochemicals than the chloroform, acetone, and ethyl acetate. Apart from these the petroleum ether extracts showed very less amount of phytochemical constituents. Wehope that the present study will be helpful for the phytochemists and pharmacologists for the identification of new compounds.

Keywords: Leaf extract, Thespesia populnea L., Secondary metabolites.
