Languages of publication
The present study was carried out to isolation and characterization of flavones compounds present in the Indoneesiella echioides (L) Nees leaves. Indoneesiella echioides (L) Nees is an important herb widely distributed in south India. This is commonly known as False Water willow. Indoneesiella echioides (L) Nees is a traditional Indian medicine; the whole plant is highly medicinal value such as the leaf juice of this plant is used to cure fever. Different pharmacological properties of Indoneesiella echioides have already been reported. The plant was extracted for various solvents in increasing order of polarity from using n-hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, acetone, ethanol, butanol and methanol. Thus, the present study was performed to investigate the preliminary phytochemical screening, isolation and characterization of flavones compounds present in the Indoneesiella echioides leaves using FT-IR, GC-MS, NMR and MASS spectral techniques.
