Analysis of secondary metabolites in T. argentea pollen by GC-MS
Ornamental plants produce large quantity of flowers and hence pollen. Pollen contain number of metabolites require for pollen function which plays specific role in pollen pigmentation and UV protection during pollination. In the present investigation flavonoids and other secondary metabolites were analysed in T. argentea pollen. Extraction was carried out using ethanol: water (3:1), and were analysed by Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). Different peaks represent the different secondary metabolites which were identified using NIST library search. T. argentea pollen is source of flavonoids and can be utilise for drug developments.
