CHEMICAL STANDARDIZATION OF MUCAMPARAP PARRUAbstract
Aim of the present study is to analyze Mūcāmparap paṛṛu, a poly herbomineral Siddha formulation for physicochemical parameters, TLC photo documentation, and HPTLC fingerprint profile studies. The physicochemical parameters such as ash contents, solubility in water and ethanol, pH, loss on drying and successive extraction with hexane, chloroform, and ethanol were carried out. Hexane, chloroform, and ethanol extracts were subjected to TLC photo documentation, HPTLC analysis. HPTLC fingerprint profile under UV 254 nm, hexane extract showed 13 peaks, chloroform showed 9 peaks and ethanol showed 10 peaks; under UV 366 nm, hexane showed 11 peaks, chloroform showed 15 peaks and ethanol showed 12 peaks; after derivatization with vanillin-sulphuric acid all the extracts showed 11 peaks. The results obtained in the study are specific and could be used as a reference in the quality control of the drug.
