Abstract:
Curcuma caesia rhizome extracts and its solvent fractionates were subjected to physicochemical and preliminary phytochemical screening using standard tests. The present study deals with phytochemical explorations of non-aerial part (rhizome) of Curcuma caesia comprising determination of loss on drying, ash values and extractive values. The qualitative chemical investigations exposed the existence of different phytoconstituents like flavanoids, terpenoids, saponins, phenolic compounds, steroids, alkaloids, quinones, proteins, carbohydrates, tannins and glycosides in the rhizome of the plant extracts. The occurrence of many bioactive constituents affirms the utilization of C. caesia for several disorders by traditional practitioners. The study disclosed specific individualities for the particular crude drug which will be suitable in recognition and control to adulterate of the raw drug.
