Singh, Karmjit (2012) Phytochemical determination and antibacterial activity of Trichosanthes dioica Roxb (Patal), Cucurbita Maxima (pumpkin) and Abelmoschus esculentus Moench (Okra) plant seeds. MSc thesis.
Phytochemical is non nutritive chemical constituents of plants which occur naturally in it i.e. termed as Phytochemical, or the chemical which is derived from plants are called Phytochemical. The herbal products today symbolize shelter in contrast to the synthetics that are regarded as unsafe to human and environment. Although herbs had been used for their medicinal, flavoring and aromatic character, over three quarters of the world population believes mainly on plants and plant extracts for health trouble. As population is increasing to a higher side day by day, there are not enough supply of drugs, there are excessive cost of treatments or curing, side effects of several allopathic drugs and development of resistance to at present used drugs for infectious diseases have led to increased importance on the use of plant materials as a source of medicines for a wide variety of human ailments. Trichosanthes dioica Roxb (Parwal) is a summer vegetable crop belonging to the family Cucurbitaceae. Cucurbita Maxima (Pumpkin) belongs to the genus of Cucurbita and the family Cucurbitaceae and it is monoecious. Okra its botanical name is Abelmoschus esculentus Moench. It is a flowering plant and belongs from family mallow Okra valued for its edible green seed pods. Various phytochemical methods were used for extract the medicinal compounds present in Trichosanthes dioica Roxb, Cucurbita Maxima and Abelmoschus esculentus Moench. Plants phytochemical components like Tannins, Saponins, Phlobatannins, Terpenoids, Flavonoids, Glycosides, steroids etc are used in many pharmaceutical and drugs fields. These are the either drugs from any plants material that destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria act as chemotherapeutic agents. It has also the ability to prevent or treat bacterial infections. In my study, we had chosen the Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella Pneumonia bacteria for testing the antibacterial activity by the plants seed of Trichosanthes dioica Roxb, Cucurbita Maxima and Abelmoschus esculentus Moench in aqueous medium.
