Identification, purification and characterization of bioactive compounds present in Bridelia ferruginea and Piper umbellatum
Preliminary screening of phytochemicals is a valuable step in the detection of bioactive principles present in medicinal plants and may lead to novel environmentally friendly bioherbicides and drug discovery. in the present study, principle phytoconstituents of Bridelia ferruginea and Piper umbellatum were identified in order to relate their presence with bioactivities of the plants, screening of the Bridelia ferruginea and Piper umbellatum were performed using standard method and resulted in the detection of presence of tannins, flavonoides, phenolics, saponins, steroids, cardiac glycosides and alkaloids. Bridelia ferruginea was found to contain all of seven bioactive compound where as the Piper umbellatum contained five compounds. It is evident from the study of Bridelia ferruginea the highest therapeutic efficacy processing majority of phytochemical classes of compounds. While Piper umbellatum recorded of the moderate therapeutic potential according to the high amount of active principles and their potential in medication, allelopathy, agrosystems daitery supplements or cosmetics industries.
