Abstract

PHYSICO CHEMICAL STANDARDIZATION OF THE SIDDHA HERBO MINERAL DRUG – GANDHAGA PARPAM

Paechiyammal S.*, Shree Devi M. S. and Muralidass S. D.

ABSTRACT

Gandhaga Parpam (GP) is a traditional Siddha Herbo-mineral medicine. The aim of the present study was to standardize the Gandhaga Parpam (GP). The physico-chemical characters like colour, ash values, pH value, Percentage yield and solubility were analysed and modern instrumental techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES).The total ash value was found to be 9.79%w/w, acid insoluble ash value is 0.98%w/w, water soluble ash value is 5.5%w/w, Moisture content 8.80%w/w and Foreign organic matter 7.99%w/w. The pH value is 7.6 and yield of percentage is 46. The ICP-OES reveals that the heavy metals such as Mercury, Lead, Arsenic, cadmium are present in the drug are below detected limit. HR-SEM analysis has been used to study particle size shape and distribution. The SEM analysis of the sample showed the particle size of 100nm in the sample.

Keywords: Gandhaga parpam, SEM, ICP-OES, Siddha medicine, Herbo mineral drug.
