Abstract

PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING, INORGANIC ELEMENTS, ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES, PROXIMATE ANALYSIS , FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING ACTIVITY AND GC-MS ANALYSIS OF METHANOL EXTRACT OF CEROPEGIA WOODII

Kiran Kumar S. J.* and Prabha S. J.

ABSTRACT

Phytochemical constituents are responsible for medicinal activity of
plant species. Hence in the present study preliminary phytochemical
screening , inorganic elements, antioxidant activities, proximate
analysis and free radical scavenging activity of Ceropegia woodii a
medicinal plant was carried out. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of
these plants confirm the presence of various secondary metabolites like
saponins, triterpenoids, steroids, tannins, lignins, alkaloids, glycosides,
flavonoids and phenols. Additionally, inorganic elements like iron,
chloride and sulphate were identified by total ash analysis. The same
extract was used for quantitative determination of total flavonoid
content (88.89mg/g), total phenolic content (77.98mg/g) and total
triterpenoids content (23.22 mg/g). The results suggest that the phytochemical properties are
used for curing various ailments and possess potential anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and
antioxidant properties. This leads to the isolation of new and novel compounds. GC-MS
analysis showed the existence of various compounds with different chemical structures. The
presence of various bioactive compounds confirms the application of Ceropegia woodii for
various ailments by traditional practitioners. However, isolation of individual phytochemical
constituents may proceed to find a novel drug.

Keywords: Ceropegia woodii , Indian Medicinal Plants, Phytochemical Screening
