Preliminary phytochemical study of leaves and roots of Fredolia aretioides, endemic plant of Algeria

Author(s): Bentabet Nesrine, Boucherit-Otmani Zahia and Boucherit Kebirm Ghaffour Kamila

The majority of the current drugs come from the medicinal plants. A better valorization of the Algerian medicinal plants passes by their scientific studies. This work, returns within the framework of the research program of LAPSAB laboratory, intended for the valorization of the local flora. It consists of the discovery of new compounds with therapeutic outlets. For that, we were interested in the study of the extracts of Fredolia aretioides. The current studies relating to the secondary metabolites, obviously stick to explore their pharmacological activities. Our work aims at making a phytochimical screening of the two parts (Sheet-stems and roots) and to determine the amount of their polyphenols. Phytochemical tests on the two parts of the plant have shown the presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins and reducing compounds. Coumarins are present only in the aerial part. The content of total phenols varies between the two parties. The methanol extract of the root contains a highest content of total phenols (917.05 Mg GAE/100g).
