Phytochemical screening, extraction and thin layer chromatography of Cymbopogon citratus

Author(s):

Abstract:

The current study's objectives are to explore the medicinally active compounds found in the methanolic extract made from Cymbopogon citratus plant leaves and to develop phytochemical parameters. Alkaloids, terpenoids, steroids, flavanoids, tannins, polysaccharides, saponins, and phenolic chemicals were all found in the extracts after preliminary phytochemical screening. The study of plant material lends itself well to the use of TLC. The number of components in a crude extract can be determined using TLC, which is an easy, quick, and affordable process. TLC offers a number of benefits, including low cost, quick analysis, the potential for multiple detection, and particular derivatization on the same plate. For Thin Layer Chromatography, methanolic extract was chosen among the available extracts. For the optimum separation of the phytoconstituents in TLC, a novel solvent system was designed.
