Antimicrobial properties and HPTLC fingerprint profile of ethnomedicinal plant Calotropis procera L. (Rui) from Poladpur taluka of Raigad district


Rajbhoj B G, M M V Baig

Calotropis procera L. (Rui) is an important ethnomedicinally plant from the family Asclepideaceae found in this region. There are two species of Calotropis, namely, Calotropis procera L. and Calotropis gigantia L., which are found in Poladpur. The screening of leaf extracts in water, alcohol, and ethyl acetate for antimicrobial properties exhibited antibacterial as well as antifungal activities. Calotropis procera leaf extract was subjected to extensive HPTLC analysis for a comprehensive HPTLC profile. Sonication was carried out using ethanol extract. Rf value, peaks in the densitogram, and chemical variation were evident in the results of the densitometric analysis. Therefore, HPTLC fingerprint analysis shows phytochemical variations present in selected leaf extract. The HPTLC fingerprint analysis profile of the plant will be helpful for drug identification, checking adulteration, and also act as a biomarker for the plant in the pharmaceutical industry.
