ABSTRACT

The present study was aimed to investigate the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the major bioactive constituents of medicinally important plant Euphorbia thymifolia in its aqueous extract of whole parts of the plant. Studies were carried out in terms of aqueous extraction, total extractive values, qualitative and quantitative estimation of phytochemicals. The percentage value of yield extraction was found to be 4.56 %. The preliminary phytochemical analysis showed the presence of phenols, flavonoids, saponins, carbohydrates, diterpenes and glycosides. The total phenolic content ranged from 0.998 mg/100mg of dry weight of extract, expressed as gallic acid equivalents. The total flavonoid concentrations varied from 2.12 mg/100mg, expressed as quercetin equivalents. It signifies that results revealed the presence of various bioactive constituents which could be exploited for their potential applications for medicinal purposes.

Keywords: Euphorbia thymifolia, Extraction, Phytochemicals, Total Phenolic Content, Total Flavonoid Content.
