QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF TOTAL PHENOLICS AND FLAVONOIDS IN SOYMIDA FEBRIFUGA LEAVESAbstract
Soymida febrifuga is belonging to family Meliaceae. The bark, fruit, and leaves contain important constituents like Quercetin-3-O-L-rhamnoside, 3-O-rutinoside, lupeol, sitosterol, methyl angolensate, deoxyandirobin. The plant has found to be ethnobotanically important. The bark is acrid; refrigerant, anthelmintic, aphrodisiac, laxative; good for sore throat; removes “vata “ cures “tridosha” fevers, cough, asthma; removes blood impurities; good for ulcers, leprosy, dysentery (Ayurveda). The bark is the bowels and useful in fevers in fevers (Yunani). The bark is astringent, tonic and antiperiodic. In intermittent fevers and general debility, in the advanced stages of dysentery, in diarrhoea, and other cases requiring the use of astringents, it has been used with success. The decoction forms a good substitute for oak-bark and is well adapted for gargles, vaginal infections, and enemas. The present study revealed the estimations of total phenolics and flavonoids were carried out according to standard procedure. Estimation of total phenolic: (Folin-Ciocalteu method) and aluminium chloride colorimetric method was used for flavonoids determination, determination of total phenolics and flavonoids were carried out results methanol extract contains 21.7%, water 48.2% and total aqueous 32.23% w/w of and methanol contains 24.27%, water 42.86% and total aqueous 26.38% respectively.
