Phytochemical Analysis and TLC Studies of Eclipta alba and Scoparia
dulcis Plant Extract-Hot Extraction
Surge of severity and frequency of diseases made the search for bioactive compounds necessitated for medicinal plants to discover its resistance
to maximum drugs as a therapeutic plant. In endemic countries where medicinal plants are often used to treat diseases. Phytochemical screening
of Scoparia dulcis and Eclipta alba has revealed the presence of alkaloids, anthocyanin, balsams, carbohydrates, cardiac glycosides, fats and
fixed Oil, flavonoids, steroids, phenol, phlobatanins, protein, resins, saponins, tannin, terpenoids and triterpene where anthocyanin was present in
Scoparia dulcis but not in Eclipta alba. Thin layer chromatography technique was used to monitor the progress of a reaction, identify compounds
present in each mixture.
