Author(s): Kulkarni CP
Abstract: Plants are the good sources for the discovery of pharmaceutical compounds and medicines. Natural products could be potential drugs for humans or live stock species and also these products and their analogues can act as intermediates for synthesis of useful drugs. In the present study Phytochemical analysis and total phenol content in Daucus carota Linn were determined using standard method. Phytochemical analysis refers to the extraction, screening and identification of the active substances that are present in a plant. Ethanolic extracts from carrots showed total phenolic content of 58 mg/gm dry plant material.
