Comparative study on phytochemical parameters of Amaranthus caudatus and Amaranthus hybridus
Screening of phytoconstituents of medicinal plants are necessary due to its immense human benefits. This information also makes easy the pharmacological studies because the mode of mechanism of plants on therapeutic effect lies on the presence of active compounds. In the present study two species of Amaranthus were taken and preliminary phytochemical tests were performed using two different solvents i.e. ethyl acetate as polar solvent and ethanol as non polar solvents. Finally both the results were compared. The presences of secondary metabolites were found more in ethanolic extract of those plants.
