Abstract
Plants are considered as a potent and powerful source of drugs that have stood the test of time, where the modern medicine and chemistry development could not replace most of them. But medicinal plants unless thoroughly investigated for its composition, it is dangerous to be used widely. Thus, the main objective of our research work was to analyze the essential quantity (0.5g, 1.0g and 2.0g) and maceration period (6hrs, 12 hrs and 24hrs) required for extraction of phytochemical compounds from 6 different plants (Albizia saman, Artocarpusm heterophyllus, Melia azedarch, Prunus dulcis, Thespesia populnea and Vitex negundo) collected in Cuddallore district. Phytochemical screening of 6 different plants were done for the presence of carbohydrates, alkaloids, proteins, glycosides, reducing sugar, aminoacids, steroids, phytosterol, terpenoids, anthroquinones, saponin, flavanoids, betacyanin, anthocyanin, starch, cardiac glycosides, tannin and phenol using standard methods at different quantities of plant extract (0.5g, 1.0g and 2.0g) and maceration periods (6hrs, 12 hrs and 24hrs). Among them, 1 g extract and 12 hrs of maceration period was found to be essential in extraction of phytochemical compounds.
