Phytochemical and FT-IR spectral analysis of in vivo and in vitro root tuber extracts of Holostemma annulare (Roxb.) K. schum.


P S Smitha Devi, T S Preetha

Medicinal plants have been used for centuries for the treatment of different diseases and disorders. The therapeutical application of these medicinal plants is attributed to the presence of different secondary metabolites or phyto-constituents in them. The present research was mainly concentrated on the preliminary phytochemical analysis and Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectral analysis of in vivo and in vitro root tuber extracts of H. annulare. The phytochemical screening of methanolic extracts of both in vivo and in vitro root tuber extracts revealed the presence of triterpenoids, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, proteins and carbohydrates. The FTIR analysis confirmed the presence of alkynes, alkanes, primary amines, aliphatic amines, alkenes and alkyl halides and the common compounds present on both the samples were primary amines, aliphatic amines alkanes and alkyl halides. The results confirm the fact that H. annulare possesses potential of bioactive compounds useful for our health and the in vitro root tubers can be used as alternatives for ayurvedic drug preparations.
