Abstract

Phytochemical and Chromatographic Fingerprint Studies on Chloroformic Extracts of Cassia tora L.

Objective: To lay down the chromatographic profile of chloroform extracts of Cassia tora L. by HPTLC technique. Methods: Chloroformic extracts prepared from leaf, flower and seed of Cassia tora L. using Soxhlet apparatus. Qualitative phytochemical screening was done and HPTLC analysis was carried out using CAMAG HPTLC system equipped with automatic TLC sampler IV, TLC scanner 3, REPROSTAR 3 with 12 bit CCD camera for photo documentation, winCATS Planer Chromatography software. Results: The results of qualitative phytochemical analysis confirmed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids and terpenoids, but absence of saponins. HPTLC determination of leaf extract showed the presence of 10 components with Rf values ranging from 0.33 - 0.92; seed revealed the presence of 8 components with Rf values in the range of 0.35 – 0.91; flower extract displayed presence of 11 components with Rf values in the range of 0.33 – 0.94. Conclusion: The presence of phytochemicals like flavonoids, terpenoids, tannins and alkaloid in Cassia tora L. increase the probable role in biological activities and their use in medicine. The HPTLC finger printing of Cassia tora L. may be useful in differentiating the species and act as a biochemical marker for this plant.
