Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy analysis of Sauromatum venosum (Ait.) schott. Tuber extract for alkaloids


M U Ghurde, S N Malode

Alkaloids are one of the largest groups of plant secondary metabolites; represent a highly diverse group of chemical entities. Plants are considered pharmacologically active when they contain alkaloids which could be of benefit to health. The FTIR spectroscopic analysis of Sauromatum venosum (Ait.) Schott. tuber extract for alkaloids revealed the presence of different characteristic peak values of alkaloids with various functional compounds in the extracts. The FTIR analysis of Sauromatum venosum (Ait.) Schott. tuber extract confirmed the presence of Ar-OH stretching, -CH3 stretching, Ar-H stretching, C-O stretching and C-O-C stretching which showed the major peaks for alkaloids. The FTIR, which was used to detect the characteristic peak values and their functional groups in tuber extract which may be used to prepare new drugs for the benefit of human health in future.
