QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF TOTAL PHENOLIC & FLAVONOID COMPOUNDS OF MEDICINAL PLANTS JATROPHA GOSSYPIFOLIA AND TAGETES ERECTA

Dr. Renu Mishra* and Vijayta Saini

ABSTRACT

Herbs have been in use since long time to treat various diseases. Medicinal plants play an important role in the development of potent therapeutic agents. Jatropha gossypifolia and Tagetes erecta are the plants selected for the study. Jatropha gossypifolia plants belonging to the family Euphorbiaceae is an insecticidal antibiotic used as toothache and as a blood purifier. Tagetes erecta plant belonging to the family Asteraceae is effective against piles, kidney troubles, muscular pains, ulcers, wounds and earache. For quantitative analysis of phytoconstituents present in both the plants extracts, total phenolic compound (TPC) and total flovanoid compound (TFC) were determined. Total TPC was determined by modified Ciocalteu method and total TFC was determined by aluminum chloride method. Three solvents acetone, methanol and water were used for TPC and TFC for both the plants. Results show that in general methanol is better solvent for extraction of flovanoid and phenol in both plants. The result obtained confirm the therapeutic potency of plant used in traditional folkloric medicine and suggest that the plant extract possess compounds which are used in the new drugs for the therapy of different diseases.

Keywords: Jatropha gossypifolia, Tagetes erecta, phytoconstituents, Phenol and Flovanoids.
