Proximate Analysis and Phytochemeical Screening on Root of Cnidoscolus carumbium

Research Article of Journal of Pharmaceutical Research and Reviews Proximate Analysis and Phytochemeical Screening on Root of Cnidoscolus carumbium *Neji, P. A1, Ushie O. A2, Alobi, N. O3, Neji, H. A4 and Etim, A. N5 1,3& 5Dept of Chemical Sciences, Cross River University of Technology, Calabar Nigeria 2Dept of Chemical Sciences, Federal University, Wukari Nigeria 4Dept of Science Education, University of Calabar, Nigeria The root of Cnidoscolus carumbium was soaked in water for 48 hours and filtered. The residue was oven dried at 800C for 4hrs. Further extraction process was done on the residue by soxhlet extraction method using different organic solvent mixtures of 500cm3 of hexane, acetone and methanol in the ratio 3:1:1 mixture. Proximate analysis for roots revealed Moisture content (19.1%), Fiber (17.7%), Crude protein (2.2%), Ash (15.5%), crude fat (1.0%), and carbohydrate (44.5%), indicating high nutritional value. The result for the extraction shows the presence of phytochemicals such as saponin, alkaloid, steroid flavonoid, phenol, tannin, cardiac glycosides, terpenoid and phlobatanin due to the solvent mixture possessing wide polarity thereby enabling the extraction of all the phytochemicals.

Utility of Marine Organisms as a Drug Source: the Perspective

Review Article of Journal of Pharmaceutical Research and Reviews Utility of Marine Organisms as a Drug Source: the Perspective Pt. (Dr.) Kartikay Pandey¹*, Chakra Chalamala² ¹Researcher, “Dr. Pandey's Laboratories and Research Foundation", Lucknow, India. ²7150 North Maple Avenue, Fresno CA, 93720, USA. More than 70% of our planet’s surface is covered with sea/salty water. Even the world's oldest, most revered and holiest texts, the Vedas, term the Ocean as ‘Ratnakar’, or the bestower of immense riches. From pre-historic times the ocean/marine world has been a source of inspiration, awe & adventure for Mankind. Contemporary science discovered potent bioactive, chemical compounds from marine organisms not before 1950s, for the first time. At present, several potent cytotoxic and anticancer drug leads, from secondary metabolites biosynthesized in Marine invertebrates, have been identified, characterised and some of them have even been synthesized. In order to tackle the problem of supply, even artificial culture of Marine organisms has been successfully attempted. Some of such vital aspects are discussed here.
