Abstract
A plant serves as a natural source of treatments and therapies for human beings as from prehistoric times to date; amongst them medicinal herbs is the best because of its extensive use and fewer side effects. In the present study, phytochemical analysis of Albizia chevalieri was carried out as this plant may be among one of the imperative medicinal herbs for the treatment of ailments like malaria, diabetes, diarrhea, and dysentery. Phytochemical analysis was carried out for the three Arial parts of the plant extracted with three different solvents (methanol, ethyl acetate and n-hexane). Qualitative analysis showed that methanol extracted almost all the secondary metabolites in all the three Arial parts of the plant. After quantification, it was observed that methanol Root extract was having the highest phenolic contents (44.83µg/GAE/g), followed by methanol leaf extract (38.89 µg/GAE/g), and methanol stem bark extract (22.00 µg/GAE/g). Root ethyl acetate extract (8.19 µg GAE/g), stem bark ethyl acetate extract (13.49 µg GAE/g), and leaves ethyl acetate extract (23.66 µg GAE/g), while n-hexane extracts were having a very low phenolic content with; n- hexane root (0.66 µg GAE/g), n-hexane stem bark extract (2.69 µg GAE/g), and n-hexane leaves extract (7.80 µg GAE/g). The presence of high amount of phyto-constituents suggest that A.chevalieri may have high medicinal value and it can be carefully studied in order to extract the natural compounds present, which may be beneficial to human beings and that which may be commercialized for higher production than using synthetic drugs with side effects.
