Solvent Solubility Assessment by Using Phytochemical Screening of Some Lamiaceae Members

Authors(1) :-Pawar R. K

Members of family Lamiaceae produce a wide array of aromatic compounds and they have been used for a number of medicinal purposes. The present study was aimed to screen some members of family Lamiaceae for their phytochemical constituents for better understanding of their solvent solubility. The qualitative phytochemical screening was performed in terms of Alkaloids, Amino acids, Carbohydrates, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Lipids, Phenols, Saponins, Steroids and Quinines. All studied species viz. Mentha arvensis, Ocimum sanctum and Coleus forskohlii shows negative response to Alkaloids, Steroids and Glycoside tests which proves their role in food except Salvia officinalis. According to results and available literature the presence of Tannins, Phenols and Flavonoids indicates medicinal properties of members of Lamiaceae and have maximum phytochemicals found soluble in organic solvents. These studies will provides referential information for the correct identification of crude drug.
