Umate SK and Marathe VR
The leaf of Alternanthera sessilis was screened for quantification of elements. This plant having relevant medicinal properties and are used as wild edible plant in Maharashtra and rest of India. Phyto-chemicals are responsible for medicinal activity of plant species whereas mineral elements play significant role in human metabolism and regulation mechanism. About twenty five essential as well as trace elements from leaf extract have measured by Inductive coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry, ICP-AES technique. Na, Mg, K, Ca, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, Se, Al, Pb, Ba, Hg, As, B, Sr, Li, Mo, Te, V, In, Th were screened. Investigations confirmed the presence of varied concentrations of Ca, Mg, K, Fe, Sr, Na, Zn etc. elements in the leaf of Alternanthera sessilis.
