Abstract:
Introduction: To identify the pharmacognositcal study of purity and strength of extracts for identification test for Cissusquadrangularis Linn. and Zingiberofficinale rosc.
Methodology: To identify the purity and strength of extracts moisture content, total ash, alcohol-soluble extractive, water- soluble extractive along withidentifiy various test for Alkaloids,Carbohydrates, Proteins and Amino Acids, Phytosterol, Glycosides, Saponins, Flavonoids, Tannins and Phenolic compounds, Triterpenoids and Fixed Oils.
Results: Cissusquadrangularis Linn. of moisture content, total ash, alcohol-soluble extractive, water- soluble extractive values were 8.21%, 19.72%, 7.82% and 21.23%,with presence of Alkaloids, carbohydrates, steroids, phenolic and tannins with PH of 7 while Zingiberofficinale rosc. for moisture content, total ash, alcohol-soluble extractive, water- soluble extractive values were 10.21%, 5.12%, 8.18% and 12.34% with presence of carbohydrates, Saponins, Steroids, Starch, Protein and Amino Acids with PH of 6.
Conclusion: Cissusquadrangularis Linn. of water-soluble extractive values were high with presence of Alkaloids, carbohydrates, steroids, phenolic and tannins. while Zingiberofficinale rocs. of moisture content and water-soluble extractive values were high with presence of carbohydrates, Saponins, Steroids, Starch, Protein and Amino Acids.
