Abstract:

Mangroves are a special group of vascular plants that occur in saline coastal habitats. Some mangroves are utilized for a wide range of conditions including bacterial, fungal and viral diseases. These specialized plants are able to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. The economical advantages of products from mangrove ecosystems are many and beneficial. Many of the mangrove species are a rich source of various important and unique phytoconstituents. The mangroves provide food and wide variety of traditional products. Keeping in view the high medicinal value and edible property, the physico-chemical studies of the some of the species of mangroves in Kochi of Kerala state in India such as Acanthus ilicifolius and Sonneratia caseolaris has been carried out. The successive extraction of the plant material was done with different solvents. Physico chemical parameters applied for the present study include ash values, extractive values, moisture content, TLC and fluorescent analysis. Thin layer chromatography has been carried out for various phytochemical constituents and the inference is noted. The findings of physico chemical analysis will be useful for establishing the standards on the purity and quality of the plant, which will be relevant in the phytomedicine research.
