Abstract

The main objective of this study is to conduct morphological, microscopical, physico-chemical and a preliminary organic investigation on the roots of a species under the genus-Viburnum Linn., belonging to Adoxaceae family, which covers about 17 species of medicinally valuable and corroborated plants in India. Macroscopic studies and various microscopic investigations were carried out to record the parameters of diagnostic values, in addition to an exploration on various physico-chemical features. An organic analysis conducted on the solvent extracts revealed the presence of bio-active molecules such as phyto-sterols, triterpenes; phenolic compounds and their derivatives such as tannins, flavonoes, simple and poly-phenolic compounds. The findings of the current study can be useful to progress and surge further scientific investigation on the roots of this species.
