The comparative studies of phytochemical screening of Piliostigma thonningii root and leaves extract

Nature was and will continue to be the source and lead for all medicinal drugs. The present study evaluates with the qualitative analysis of Aqueous, Chloroform, Ethyl acetate, Methanolic and N-Hexane extracts of various parts of Piliostigma thonningii. These parts (Leaves and root) of Piliostigma thonningii were extracted by cold percolation method using organic solvents such as Aqueous, Chloroform, Ethyl acetate, Methanol and Hexane. The various parts’ extracts of the plant reveal alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, reducing sugars, resins, saponnins and tannins. P. thonningii is known as” Kargo or kalgo” in Hausa, is a tree which has many uses as its various parts are employed in traditional medicine, and modern medical research has found that it has many beneficial properties too.
