Abstract:
K
Fig leaves (Ficus carica Linn.) belong to the family Moraceae which constituted one of the largest genera of the medicinal plants. Ficus carica is an important member of the genus Ficus. The common fig is one of the first plants that were cultivated by humans. Preliminary phytochemical screening of ethanolic extract shows the presence of carbohydrates, alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, proteins, saponins and terpenoids. Different biologically active compounds are also present in fig. The leaf of Ficus carica consists of various volatile compounds which are identified and distributed by distinct chemical classes. Different spectral analysis like HPLC, UV, IR, HNMR, C13 and Mass Spectrometry were done. From the results, it was confirmed that the isolated compound is Psoralen.
