Phytochemical Analysis Of Musanga Cecroproides


The phytochemical analysis of CH3 OH: H2O (4 : 1) extract of Musanga cecroproides was carried out using standard method. The result showed that the Musanga cecropioids extract contain tannins, saponins, glycosides alkaloids, flavonoids and phlobatannins.

The fruit is usually a dry achene, sometimes a fleshly drupe often enclosed by the persistent perianth.

This family has about 47 genera and 1300 species. They are most numerous in wet tropical regions, extending into temperate regions and consist of 25 genera and 341 species (163 endemic one introduced) in china.

Plant in this family have numerous uses the stem fiber of some genera and species are of high quality and used to make cloth, fishing nets and ropes and for some industrial material. ( musangu -celropiodes.

1.2 Aims Of Study

  1. To ascertain the photochemical properties of the musanga cecropiodies
  2. To determine the mechanical activities involved.

1.3 Statement Of The Problem

Amous et al (2005) explain that medicinal plant has lost its value in our society due to lack of experts who could have work hard to extract the active ingredients from these plats.

1.4 Significance Of The Study

musanga cecropioides contain phytochemical properties which are of medicinal important to human health. The results of this work will determine if masanga cecropioides contain phytochemical properties.

1.5 Limitations Of The Study

This work is limited at the phytochemical analysis of musange cecropioides only. Another constraint on this work was poor financial status on my part which was a hindrance during the course of this project work. Moreover, the cost of materials for the project work was high limiting the number of sample for the project work was limited to only phytochemicals.
