Comparative studies of phytochemical screening of Ficus sycomorus linn stem bark extract and Piliostigma thonningii roots extract

Plants and its components have application in traditional medicine because of the myriad uses they have been subjected to. The ease of application is based on the secondary metabolites this plant contains. Present study deals with the qualitative analysis of Aqueous, Chloroform, Ethyl acetate, Methanolic and N-Hexane extracts of stem bark of Ficus sycomorus Linn and extract of roots of Piliostigma thonningii. These were extracted by cold percolation method using organic solvents such as Aqueous, Chloroform, Ethyl acetate, Methanol and Hexane. The methanol extract of stem bark of ficus sycomorus reveal alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, reducing sugars, resins, saponnins and tannins. The F.sycomorus is known as “Baure or Bore” and P. thonningii is known as” Kargo or kalgo” both in Hausa, they are small trees or shrub which have many uses as they are used in traditional medicine, and modern medical research has found that they have many beneficial properties.
