ABSTRACT:
In developing countries like India, more than 60 percentage of the population relies only on the traditional medicine in order to meet their physical conditions. Traditional medicine has been more commonly practiced in ayurvedic treatment without knowing the knowledge of the actual secondary constituents present in the plant material. Secondary constituents present in the plants play an important role in healing and curing various human diseases. The first and foremost step in in vitro drug designing was the screening of phytoconstituents of the traditional plants. Through literature survey on traditional plant, Sterculia foetida was a frequently used plant for its high medicinal properties. To our knowledge, this current investigation was the first attempt to screen the amount of phytoconstituents present in the leaves of Sterculia foetida using five different solvent (hexane, chloroform, methanol, ethyl acetate and aqueous) based on their polarity. On comparative studies of the current research, the results revealed that the methanol leaves extracted exhibit a high yield percentage of secondary constituents when compared with other four solvents. Further identification, isolation of biocompounds present in the methanol leaves could lead to a novel natural antioxidant which was used in preventing various diseases.
