Abstract

CHARACTERIZATION OF MUCILAGE FROM CASSIA FISTULA AS PHARMACEUTICAL EXCIPIENT

Madhu*, Pravin Kumar, Dr. Vinay Pandit and Dr. M. S. Ashawat

Abstract

Natural polymers remain appealing primarily because they are plantbased products that are readily available, inexpensive, and capable of a wide range of chemical modifications. The purpose of this study is to extract and characterize mucilage obtained from cassia fistula seeds for use as pharmaceutical excipients. Acetone was used in the mucilage extraction. The solubility of extracted mucilage in various solvents was investigated. Various parameters, including tests for carbohydrates, protein, starch, reducing and non-reducing sugars, alkaloids, and other parameters, as well as Micromeritic properties such as bulk and tapped density, Carr’s consolidation index, hausner's ratio, and swelling index, were discussed in order to characterize the extracted mucilage. Cassia fistula (Family: fabaceae). It has numerous medical and pharmacological applications. It has a high mucilage content, which can be used as an additive in pharmaceutical formulations. It is used in traditional medicine and has diuretic, expectorant, stomachic, ophthalmic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory activity, antioxidant, demulcent, emollient, febrifuge, and haemostatic properties. This paper provides an overview of plant pharmacological and photochemical properties, as well as therapeutic benefits.

Keywords: Antioxidant, Antibacterial, Antifungal, Flavonoids.
