A Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) Spectroscopic Analysis of Azolla microphylla.


Theivandran Gandhi

Abstract


FT-IR spectra of Azolla microphylla have been recorded in the range between 4000–400 cm−1.  The different frequency ranges and their different functional groups were analyzed. Standard methods were used to screen the phytochemical constitunents.  Azolla was found to have essential phytochemical compounds like phenols, alkenes, aliphatic amines, aromatic amines. Azolla has potential benefits in the areas of biochemical, antioxidant anti-inflammatory protection, anticancer, in detoxification and probiotic effects.
