Medicinal plants play a vital role for the development of new drugs. The extracts of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and the crude drug itself are being used as an anti-ulcer, aphrodisiac, menorrhagic, oral contraceptive, laxative, anti-fertility, anti-implantation, abortifacient, epilepsy, leprosy, bronchial catarrh and diabetes.
Aim of the study
To establish authenticity, possible to help and distinguish the drug from other species by preliminary pharmacognostical screening of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves
Material and methods
The plant was extracted with different solvents and the extracts were subjected to different qualitative chemical tests.
The presence of various phytoconstituents was observed during the test such as glycosides, alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, saponin and carbohydrates were present in the extracts.
We believe that The investigation carried out by us led to certain findings about the phytochemical features which no doubt can be proved beneficial and serve as scientific background for further isolation steps to obtain the lead compound.
