Abstract:

Objective: Preliminary Phytochemical and Pharmacognostic study of Ipomoea quamoclit Linn of leaf extract. 
Methods: The leaf was collected, shade-dried, and made into powder. The powdered plant material was subjected to successive solvent extraction by the Soxhlet extraction method using methanol as solvent. The extracts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical screening in which chemical tests were carried out for the detection of various phytoconstituents. In the pharmacognostic study the macroscopical examination was documented using a Nikon D-5600 Digital camera as well as and in microscopical examination the Sample was preserved in fixative FAA for more than 48 hr. The preserved specimens were cut into thin transverse sections using a sharp blade and the sections were stained with 0.8% safranin and 0.5% astra blue. Transverse sections were photographed using an Axiolab 5 trinocular microscope attached to the Zeiss Axiocam 208 color digital camera under bright field light. Magnifications were indicated by the scale bar.
Conclusion: The present study reveals the preliminary phytochemical and Pharmacognostic study of Ipomoea quamoclit of leaf extract.
