Abstract

UV-VIS SPECTROSCOPIC STUDY ON PHYTOCONSTITUENTS OF ASPARAGUS RACEMOSUS WILLD ROOT TUBER

Anurag Mishra*, Vijay Kumar Mishra, Divya Dwivedi, K. N. Dwivedi

ABSTRACT

"Asparagus racemosus Willd. is a well known medicinal plant which has been consumed for long back to cure various ailments". It is rich in medicinally important phytoconstituents as a potential source of compounds possessing beneficial biological activities. These phytoconstituents reflect their fingerprints under spectroscopic characterizations such as UV-Vis, Photoluminescence, FT-IR and Raman studies. Thus, the present study is focused to understand the UV-Vis characteristics of Asparagus racemosus Willd. juice and powder as well as to identify the contained phytoconstituents. The work was undertaken to appraise the UV-Vis spectroscopic analysis of Asparagus racemosus Willd. root tuber in two different forms; juice and powder. The UV-Vis spectra of the root tuber extracts prepared in forms of juice and powder were recorded in the range 200-900 nm. The study confirmed the presence of tannins and flavonoids (phenolic compounds). Tannins and/or flavonoids contained plants have already been used to improve human health and life by curing numerous diseases.

Keywords: Asparagus racemosus; Tannins; Flavonoids; UV-Vis Spectroscopy.
