PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND ANTIOXIDANT ASSAY OF PLANT STROBILANTHES DYERIANA MAST
Keywords:Strobilanthes dyeriana Mast, Total Phenolic Content (TPC), Total Flavonoid Content (TFC), DPPH Assay, FT-IR Assay
Strobilanthes dyeriana Mast. is ever green, tropical shrub belonging to family Acanthaceae. It is ornamental plants grown for its metallic – purple stripes radiating from the middle of the vein and for its foliage that is dark green colours. In present study, the effects of three different solvents such as methanol, acetone and aqueous were investigated to determine the presence of phytochemicals , total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, antioxidant assay and FT-IR assay in leaves of Strobilanthes dyeriana Mast. The result concluded that flavonoids, tannins, phenols, proteins, terpenoids, cardiac glycosides are present in leaves extracts. In TPC, the highest content was observed in methanol extract of leaves and lowest content was observed in aqueous extract of leaves while in TFC, the highest content was observed in acetone extract of leaves and lowest content was observed in methanol extract of leaves. In DPPH assay, the maximum IC50 value was founded in methanol (636.163 µg/ml) and lowest in aqueous extract (198.716 µg/ml).
