RESEARCH BODY

ABSTRACT

Ceiba pentandra (totoro) is a plant that is very popular in African Traditional medicine and it belongs to the family of Bombacaceae. The matured tree is as much as 56 m high, with long cylindrical and huge buttresses to 8 m high and wide spreading. It is the largest tree of the West African region and it occurs throughout the continent.

Qualitative analysis indicated that the leaves contained alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, Saponin, glycoside, tannin. Quantitative analysis showed that Alkaloids (3.4%), Saponins (6.6%), Flavonoids (0.21mg/ml), Tannins (0.85%), Phenol (0.013mg/ml). It was observed that Saponin and Alkaloids have the highest level of presence when compared to other constituents present. Phenol and Flavonoid also have the lowest level of concentration in hexanolic extract of Ceiba pentandra.
