Abstract

The Siddha system of medicine is an indigineous system of medicine which belongs to south India. It has a plethora of medications mentioned for numerous diseases. Aim: The present study is the UV-Vis spectroscopic and FTIR analysis of alcoholic extract of Aanai Nerunjil Kudineer, which is a herbal drug indicated for the management of kalladaippu (Urolithiasis) in the textbook Gunapadam mooligai (Pg. no:597).Materials and methods: Aanai Nerunjil (Pedalium murex)plants and Seeds of Kothumalli (Coriandrum sativum)were collected from the locality of Tuticorin, Tamilnadu and were dried under sunshade and ground into coarse powder and then mixed in a 4:1 ratio respectively. UV-Visible spectroscopy can provide a quantitative information on the different phytochemicals present in the sample. FTIR, a qualitative analytical technique can be helpful in identification of the functional groups and naming the compounds in the sample. Results: The presence of absorption peaks between 300nm and 700nm were confirmed by UV-Vis spectroscopy investigation. The presence of carboxylic acid, aromatic compound, alkylhalide, alcohol and alkene functional groups was confirmed by FTIR analysis. Through this study, it can be concluded that Aanai Nerunjil kudineer contains various phytochemical compounds, for proving its efficacy.
