Krati Ghavri and Madhavi Adhav
Thevetia peruviana (Pers.) is one of the important medicinal as well as ornamental plant belongs to the family Apocynaceae and commonly called as yellow oleander. In phytochemical screening the ethanolic leaf extract shows the presence of alkaloids, flavanoids, glycosides - cardiac glycosides, phenolic compounds, tannins, phytosterols, carbohydrates, proteins and amino acids. The fixed oils, fats, gums and mucilages were totally absent. The UV and IR spectroscopy of ethanolic leaf extract of Thevetia yellow shows the presence of carbonyl group, β - diketones, aldehydes, ketones, amides, lactams, sulfur compounds, aromatic compounds, nitro compounds, indole alkaloids, chalcones, flavones, flavanol, quercetin, NaQSA (sodium salt of quercetin 5‘sulfonic acid), myricetin types of flavonoids.
