Abstract

This research deals with the phytochemistry and quantitative determination of phytocompounds from the stem bark of Erythrina senegalensis an important medicinal plant. The study involves the preliminary screening and quantitative determination of the secondary metabolites from the stem bark of Erythrina senegalensis. The phytochemical screening revealed that Erythrina senegalensis contains alkaloids, saponins, tannins, terpenes, and cardiac glycosides. Its quantitative determination of the detected phytocompounds showed saponins 0.75%, tannins 0.92%, and alkaloids 0.94% for the stem bark. The data generated has provided the basis for its wide use in the traditional and folk medicine.

 

Keywords: Erythrina senegalensis, phytocompounds, Plant materials, Phytochemicals, Stem Barks
