Abstract

The present study was carried out to characterize the bioactive constituents present in leaf extracts of Boerhavia diffusa L by using TLC. Phytochemical analysis showed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosides, and phenols. The highly polar compounds would not appear as a distinct spot by TLC but would remain at the origin. Quantitatively mineral composition estimation revealed the presence of minerals like sodium, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc and magnesium. In the present study Mg, Ca, Na are in large quantity while Cu and Zn are relatively low compared to the other elements.
