Research Summary :

o Identification of novel source of plant rich in polyphenolics (especially flavonoids) from the foot
hills of western ghats by applying high pressure thin layer chromatographic technique (HPTLC)
and by determining total phenolic content, total flavonoid content and antioxidant assay ;

identification and isolation of the compounds present in the bioactive fraction of the selected
plant using various techniques such as RP HPLC, GC/MS, 1 H NMR etc.
o Insilico biological screening of the flavonoids identified to evaluate the dominant
pharmacological activity.
o Perform density functional theory (DFT) calculations to understand the structural contributions of
the isolated compounds towards antioxidant activity.
o To explore the application of plants rich in polyphenolics in textile and food industry as a natural
dye/colorant.
