FTIR and UV-Visible analysis of Geodorum densiflorum (Lam.) Schltr Pseudobulb
The present investigation conducted to produce fourier transform‐infrared (FT-IR) and ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS) spectrum profile of Geodorum densiflorum. Pseudobulb extract in petroleum ether was used for spectral analysis. FTIR analysis was used to detect the characteristic peak values and their functional groups. FTIR analysis of pseudobulb powder extract in petroleum ether revealed the presence of alcohols, phenols, alkanes, aliphatic ester, aromatic ring, alkenes, carboxylic acids, ethers, anhydrides and alkyl halides. UV-VIS profile of pseudobulb powder extract in petroleum ether showed the peaks at wavelength 345 nm, 355 nm and 925 nm with the absorption 0.36, 0.57 and 0.16 respectively. So the present investigation provides evidences that pseudobulb of Geodorum densiflorum contain bioactive constituents which could be of interest for the development of new drug
