Savita Sangwan

In the course of present research venture, a phytosterol viz., β-sitosterol was secluded from the in vivo leaves of P. pinnata and identification of the secluded compound was accomplished through TLC, Rf value, IR spectroscopy and NMR. Furthermore, the leaf methanolic extract was also analyzed by GC/MS spectroscopy in P. pinnata. It was observed that 64 secondary compounds were isolated in P. pinnata, respectively.
