NMR Spectral Analysis on Root Extract of Zehneria scabra - A Vital Medicinal Climber

Zehneria scabra is an important climber belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae, which has used in many traditional medicinal systems. It has many medicinal values such as to cure fever, diarrhoea, skin diseases, stomach pain and treat livestock. Such bioactive chemical compounds identified by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectral analysis. The proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of the root sample were recorded and the chemical shift values of the various signals are identified by the presence of Gypenoside. This bioactive compound is confirmed as the valuable medicinal compound likely to cure vast array of disease. Key words: Cucurbitaceae, Gypenoside, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Phytochemistry, Root extract, Zeheneria scabra.
