Abstract


Objectives: To characterize the number of phytoconstituents present in triphala using FT-IR and GC-MS.

Methods: Antibacterial activity was measured by disc diffusion method, antifungal activity were analyzed by poisoned food technique, organic analysis was done by FT-IR, phytocomponents were identified by GC-MS analysis.

Results: The major bioactive components were present in methanolic extracts, further screened by GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of 10 bioactive compounds. The results were presented that triphala contains richly 1,2,3-Benzenetriol, 2-Furancarboxaldehyde, 5-(hydroxymethyl)-, 4H-Pyran-4-one, 2,3-dihydro-3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl-, Furfural, 2H-Pyran-2,6(3H)-dione, D-Allose, n-Hexadecanoic acid, DL-Proline, 5-oxo-, methyl ester, Undecanol-5, 9-Phenanthrenol

Conclusion: Present findings indicated promising antimicrobial and phytocomponents are present and having remarkable number of qualities.
