Abstract:

The present study was aimed to evaluate the bioactive phytochemical constituents of Adina cordifolia leaves, with this broad objectives the total phenolic contents (TPC), total flavonoid contents (TFC), total antioxidant potential and GC-MS analysis of leaf extracts were carried out. For the identification of medicinally important compounds in Adina cordifolia leaf, extracts were prepared using cold extraction method in different solvents of varying polarities viz chloroform, ethyl acetate, acetone and methanol. Total phenolic content of plant extracts was analysed using Folin-ciocalteu reagent, total flavonoid content was estimated by using aluminium chloride and total antioxidant activity was estimated by formation of a green phosphate Mo(V) complex at acid pH. Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy was performed to identify phytocompounds present in plant extracts using National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. The highest total phenolic content and flavonoid were found in acetone extract of Adina cordifolia leaf. Total antioxidant activity was highest in methanol extract. A wide range of fatty acids and phytocompounds were also identified having antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory activities. The study concludes that Adina cordifolia have many biologically important compounds, so it can be recommended as a plant of pharmaceutical importance.
