Qualitative phytochemical screening and ftir spectroscopic analysis of mitracarpus hirtus leaf extracts
- Mitracarpus hirtus, Phytochemicals, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
The present study aim is to analyze the phytochemicals present in Mitracarpus hirtus leaf extracts by using Qualitative phytochemical analysis, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The leaf extracts were prepared using three different solvents. The phytochemical analysis Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis were performed using standard methods. The FTIR spectroscopic studies revealed different characteristic peak values with various functional groups present in the compounds of respective extracts. The FT-IR analysis shows the presence of different functional groups such as alcohols, phenols, alkanes, carboxylic acids, aldehydes, ketones, alkenes, primary amines, aromatics, esters, ethers, alkyl halides and aliphatic amine compounds, which showed major compounds present in the leaf extracts. The present study generated the FTIR spectrum profile for the medicinally important plant Mitracarpus hirtus. The present study provides evidences that different extracts of Mitracarpus hirtus leaf is useful to cure many serious diseases which remained still problematic and for further isolation of bioactive compounds from the plant which could be of interest for the development of the new drug.
