ABSTRACT

Mimosa pudica L. (Mimosaceae)is a creeping annual or perennial herb. It is also referred to as touch me not, live and die and humble plant is a prostrate or semi-erect subshrub of tropical America and Australia, also found in India.

It appears to be a promising herbal candidate to undergo further exploration as evident from its pharmacological profile for its antibacterial, antivenom, antifertility, anticonvulsant, antidepressant, aphrodisiac and various other activities. This work is an attempt to explore and compare Mimosapudica root‘s secondary metabolites obtained by Direct extraction method with three different solvents using preliminary screening and Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopic techniques.The results revealed maximum number of phytochemicals and functional groups which corresponds toalkaloids, steroids, phenols and glycosides which in turn is responsible for the possible pharmacological property exhibited by the herb.
