Qualitative And Quantitative Analysis Of Medicinal Tree’s Belonging To Myrtaceae Family
The study is aimed to investigate the phytochemical constituents present in the three medicinal tree
species of Myrtaceae family such as Syzygium densiflorum, Syzygium tamilnadensis and Euginea candolleana, in
which Syzygium densiflorum is categorized as a vulnerable species in the IUCN red list of threatened species.
Preliminary phytochemical analysis revealed the presences of tannins, alkaloids, and phenols, whereas saponins,
terpenoids, steroids, phytosteroids, phlobatannins and anthraquinones are absent for tested extracts. The amount
of total phenol, total flavonoids and Tannin content in n-hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of Syzygium
densiflorum, Syzygium tamilnadensis and Euginea candolleana are determined spectrometrically. The
methanolic extract shows high phenolic, flavonoid and tannins content for Euginea candolleana. The Syzygium
densiflorum shows the presence of tannin content in methanolic extract. The presence of alkaloids is found to be
high in Syzygium tamilnadensis of n- hexane and ethyl acetate extract. This report shows the complete study on
qualitative and quantitative analysis of the tree leaves extracts.
