Abstract

Objective: The present study aim is to analyse the phytochemicals present in Grewia tilifolia (Vahl) leaf extracts by using Qualitative phytochemical analysis, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).


Methods: The leaf extracts were prepared using eight different solvents. The phytochemical analysis Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) analysis were performed using standard methods.


Results: The FTIR spectroscopic studies revealed different characteristic peak values with various functional groups present in the compounds of respective extracts. The FT-IR analysis shows the presence of different functional groups such as alcohols, phenols, alkanes, carboxylic acids, aldehydes, ketones, alkenes, primary amines, aromatics, esters, ethers, alkyl halides and aliphatic amine compounds, which showed major compounds present in the leaf extracts. The present study generated the FTIR spectrum profile for the medicinally important plant Grewia tilifolia.


Conclusion: The present study provides evediences that different extracts of Grewia tilifolia leaf is useful to cure many serious diseases which remained still problematic and for further isolation of bioactive compounds from the plant which could be of interest for the development of the new drug.

Keywords: Grewia tiliaefolia (Vahl), Phytochemicals, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
