Abstract

Aims: Aim of the study was to analyse the physicochemical and phytochemical analysis of Moringa oleifera extracts.

Methodology: The physicochemical & phytochemical analysis of Moringa oleifera includes ash values, extractive value, LOD, pH etc.

Results: The physicochemical parameters of the methanol extract were analysed as per standard method. The aqueous & methanolic extract of Moringa oleifera showed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, flavonoids, glycosides, phenols, phytosterol saponins and tannins. The amounts of total flavonoid and phenolic were found to be 71.63 mg and 10.31 mg/g of the methanol extract, respectively. It was found that the phytochemical constituents are very much enriched in the Moringa oleifera extract and can the used for the development of new formulations.

Keywords: Moringa oleifera, physicochemical, phytochemical, total phenolics, total flavonoids
