Biochemical and Physicochemical Characterization of Phytochemical from Hygrophila schulli (Buch. Ham.) M.R. Almeida and S.M. Almeida
Background: Plants are an important source of medicine. Most of the plants are studied for their therapeutic values and to treat various diseases. Hygrophila schulli is one of the important medicinal plants belonging to the family Acanthaceae. The medicinal uses of this plant are mentioned in traditional systems of medicine such as Ayurvedha, Unani, and Sidha. Materials and Methods: An attempt is made to decipher the phytocomponents present in H. schulli using standard techniques. Results: Different parts of H. schulli were extracted using methanol as a solvent and were subjected to several Instrumental analyses for identification of various phytochemical analyses such as UV-VIS to observe the major peaks, FT-IR to identify the functional groups and GC-MS to identify and quantify the phytocompounds present in the plant. Conclusion: The various phytochemicals present in different parts of H. schulli is identified and tabulated in this research article.
