DETECTION OF FLAVANOIDS, TANNINS, PHENOLS AND PHENOLIC FLAVANOIDS IN VARIOUS SOLVENT EXTRACTS OF ANNONA MURICATA USING LEAD ACETATE TEST
This recent research results obtained from the qualitative screening using lead acetate test to detect phenolic flavonoids, tannins, phenols and flavonoids in various solvent extracts of Annona muricata rely on the visual color change reactions as a basic response to the presence of a specific phytochemical compound. Annona muricata belongs to Annonaceae which is now used as natural therapy for treating cancer. The different solvent extracts showed different phytochemicals by the analysis using lead acetate test. Flavanoids were detected in Methanol Fresh, Methanol Dry, Petroleum Ether Fresh and Hexane Fresh extracts, Tannins and Phenols were present in acetone fresh Aqueous dry and fresh extracts Phenolic flavonoids were present in Acetone Dry, Butanol Fresh, Butanol Dry, Chloroform Fresh, Chloroform Dry, Ethanol Fresh, Ethanol Dry, Ethylacetate Fresh, Ethylacetate Dry, Petroleum ether Dry, Iso amyl Alcohol Fresh, Isoamyl Alcohol Dry, Hexane Dry and was absent in all other tested extracts.[Full Text Article]
