Abstract

QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF MENTHA PULEGIUM L.VAR. ERECTA

*Padmavathi S. Rao and Girdharilal B. Tiwari

ABSTRACT

Mentha pulegium L. var. erecta has remarkable medicinal properties and is recently reported for the first time in Vidarbha region. There is a growing interest of industry to replace synthetic chemicals by natural products with bioactive properties from plant origin. The aim of this study was to validate the therapeutic properties of Mentha pulegium L. commonly known as Pennyroyal, by conducting a qualitative and quantitative analysis of phytochemicals, to determine the chemical composition of secondary metabolites. The whole plant has various bioactive components or phytochemical constituents such as alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, steroids, terpenoids and tannins. The present study was carried out to find the availability of these important phyto-constituents in aqueous, methanol and ethanol crude extracts. Quantitative analysis was also carried out for three metabolites. This species has never been investigated pharmacologically till now, even if its properties were traditionally well-known. In view of this reason, Pennyroyal was selected for phytochemical analysis.
