Preliminary Phytochemical Test and Physicochemical Properties of Roots of Croton tomentosus Muell. Arg.
- Croton tomentosus Muell. Arg. belongs to the family of Euphorbiaceae and locally known as sepale in Myanmar. These plants were collected from Loikaw Township, Kayah State. In this paper, preliminary phytochemical tests and physicochemical properties have been carried out from the root of Croton tomentosus Muell. Arg. In phytochemical investigation, cyanogenic glycoside and saponin were found to be absent. Alkaloid, glycoside, carbohydrate, reducing sugar, starch, tannins, phenolic compound, flavonoid, steroids and terpenoids were found to be present. According to the physicochemical properties, the yield of methanolic extract of roots were more than the other solvent extracts.
