Author(s):

Abstract:
Phytochemical analysis of leaf extracts provides the concentrations of various phytochemicals present in the leaf sample. In the present study, the different leaf extract made from guava, lemon, vitex, moringa and custard apple were used for quantitative estimation of phytochemicals like phenols, flavonoids, tannins and terpenoids. Three different leaves extracts like methanol, ethanol and aqueous were prepared from the five selected leaves. The highest phenol content was observed in ethanol extract of vitex leaves 26.9±0.56 (mg GAE/100 g) and lowest was observed in Moringa methanol extract 10±0.45 (mg GAE/100 g). The Flavonoid content was observed highest in methanol extract of guava leaves 63.8±3.51 (mg RE/100 g) and lowest in moringa aqueous extract 7.8±0.75 mg RE/100g. The tannin content was highest in aqueous extract of guava leaves 150.05±4.76 % and lowest in ethanol extract of lemon leaves 4.8±0.00%. The highest terpenoid content was seen in aqueous extract of guava leaves and methanol of guava leaves.
