Abstract

Isolation and Characterization of Triterpenoids in Cuticular wax of leaves of Helicanthus elasticus Linn. (Loranthaceae) parasitic on Memecylon umbellatum Burm.f. (Melastomataceae)

The triterpenoid pattern of cuticular wax of leaves of Helicanthus elasticus Linn. (Loranthaceae) parasitic on Memecylon umbellatum Burm.f. (Melastomataceae) was studied and compare with standard triterpenoids such as lupeol, olenolic acid and betulin. From HPTLC analysis further study focus on isolation of some triterpenoids from cuticular wax of leaves of Helicanthus elasticus Linn. (Loranthaceae). The cuticular extract was subjected to column chromatography and isolated compound characterized by UV, IR, HPTLC and MS studies and compare with standards. From the results cuticular wax of Helicanthus elasticus Linn shows presence of lupeol. In future it may help in tracing some major triterpenoids because it having promising pharmacological activity.
