Abstract : Phytochemical investigation on Coscinium fenestratum (Gaertn.) Collebr, an important Ayurvedic plant, revealed the presence of significant amounts of ecdysterone in the stem (0.22%) and leaves (0.12%), in addition to berberine. Ecdysterone was characterized using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (LC-MS). Isolation of this multi- functional bioactive compound will throw light on the chemical basis for the various pharmacological effects of Coscinium plant extract.
