Abstract

BackgroundCyperusrotundus (Musta), is a medicinal plant growing in tropical, sub-tropical and temperate regions having many pharmacological and medicinal characteristics. The current study attempts to standardize the extracts of raw drug Musta as per pharmacopoeial requirement. Materials and methods Roots and rhizomes of Musta sold in the markets of Mangalore were collected. Test sample was analysed for ash and extractive values. Tests for phytochemicals like alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, phenols, carbohydrates, saponins, tannins and coumarins were performed in both ethanolic and aqueous extracts. Total phenolic content of the extracts were done as per standard protocol. Fingerprint profile of ethanolic and aqueous extract has been derived by photodocumentation and HPTLC densitometric scan. Result and discussion Ash values, extractive values, phytochemical tests, total phenol content and the HPTLC fingerprint of the Musta has been derived from the current study. Conclusion The set of values obtained from the studies can be used as standards for testing, standardization and quality control of medicinal materials sold as Musta.
