Screening of phytochemical analysis of Pteridophytes of Western Ghats


M.Maridass and G. Raju






The aim of the present study, to analyze the preliminary phytochemical constituents of 254 pteridophyte species of the Western Ghats region of South India. The collected species of pteridophytes were identified. They identify the collected pteridophyte species were a shade dried and powdered. 5gms of powdered each pteridophyte species were successfully extracted with 100 ml of alcohol and distilled water using a conical flask for 2h at a room temperature. The preliminary phytochemical analysis of the extracts of pteridophyte species was carried out the standard methods. The conclusion of the present study observed that flavonoids are the major quantity of color indicated and followed by the medium level of colour indicated in alkaloids, and terpenoids in present in the maximum number of pteridophytes. Trace levels of colour indicated in active constituents of carbohydrate, tannin and saponin were observed by all the pteridophyte species.

The aim of the present study antimicrobial activity of leaf extract of Euphorbia thymifolia were tested against the human pathogenic bacterial and fungi such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus pumilis, Bacillus subtilis, Klebsiella pncumoniae,, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Fusarium monoliforme and Phanerochaete chrysosporium by disc diffusion method. The results of the present study observed that among the three solvents, the ethanol extract showed broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Aspergillus niger. The chloroform extract was exhibited significant antimicrobial activity against Candida albicans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The petroleum ether extract was showed moderate antimicrobial activity against Fusarium monoliforme and Bacillus subtilis.
