Qualitative phytochemical analysis in Tagetes erecta (African marigold) extracted in different solvents

T. Manimegalai and S. Iruthaya Kalai Selvam*

African marigold or Tagetes erecta, is a brittle, blooming, efflorescent, annual and houseplant that is universally cultivated. In the modern world, plant-derived phytochemicals are basic because each phytochemical is responsible for different functions in the preparation of food products, dye for clothing, pharmaceuticals, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-aging, antibacterial, antiparasitic, antidepressant, anti-cancer, antioxidant and wound healing. Phytochemical properties of Tagetes erecta plant parts like fresh and dry leaves, flowers and roots were treated with different solvents (Aqueous, Chloroform and Methanol). The alkaloids, flavanoids, steroids, terpenoids, glycosides, coumarins, tannins, saponins, proteins and carbohydrates are found using standard screening methods and were found to be present in all the fresh and dry plant parts treated with different solvents. The following alkaloids, flavonoids, and glycosides are primarily detected in aqueous, chloroform, and methanol solvents, according to ten phytochemical analyses that were conducted.
