Phytochemical Analysis of Meizotropis pellita by FTIR and UV- VIS Spectrophotometer


Objective: The present study investigates the characterization of the bioactive constituents showing antimicrobial activity present in leaf extract of Meizotropis pellita using UV-VIS and FTIR spectroscopy. Method: The methanolic extract of the leaves of Meizotropis pellita prepared by cold maceration method and analysed under ultraviolet and visible light. The scanning of the crude extract was done at the range from 190-800 nm through Varian Cary -100 UV Visible spectrophotometer system and the characteristic peaks were detected. FTIR studies was done on a Jasco-4100 system, ranging 4000-400 cm-1which revealed the characteristic peak values showing the absorption and functional groups present in leaf extract. Findings: The UV-VIS profile showed the peaks at 660, 340, 270, 235 and 210 nm with the absorption 0.085, 1.250, 2.605, 4.455and 3.639. The result of FTIR spectra confirms the presence of alcohol, aldehydes carboxylic acid, aromatic and halogen compounds. So the present study provide evidences that leaves of Meizotropis pellita contain bioactive constituents which could be of interest for the development of new drug.
