Abstract Share this page

The qualitative analysis of phytochemicals profile, antioxidant and antibacterial activities of Bauhinia alba and Bauhinia variegata flowers have been studied showing the presence of bioactive secondary metabolites. The phytochemical screening of n -hexane chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanolic fractions of B. variegata flowers revealed the presence of terpenoids, while steroids and cardiac glycosides were present in the entire fractions. B. alba flower showed the presence of terpenoids in n -hexane fraction while chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol fractions contain steroids. The extracts/fractions of both plants were evaluated for antibacterial and antioxidant activity which indicated moderate activities against selected bacterial strains and scavenging property.
