Abstract

Peperomia pellucida (L.) Kunth. belongs to family Piperaceae, is used in traditional system of medicine for treatment of several disorders. The leaves was the main source of the raw material for the herb-drug product, so the material and some parameters identified were needed to ensure the safety, quality and efficacy of the product.The present study was to evaluation revealed interesting macros- and microscopic characteristic of the Indonesian plant and establishment of its quality parameters including fluorescence characters, physicochemical, and phytochemical screening.Fluorescence characters of powdered material were analysed under ultraviolet and ordinary light, which signifies their characteristics. Moisture content, alcohol and water soluble extractive were also determined, and were found to be 9.68 , 18.12 and 6.23%. Physicochemical parameters such as total ash value, water soluble and acid insoluble ash value were determined which were 7.03, 5.27, 0.55% respectively. The TLC profile of different extracts (hexane, DCM and methanol) of P. pellucida showed 10, 5 and 4 spot respectively. Phytochemical screening of aqueous ethanolic extract of leaf of the P. pellucida showed the presence of alkaloid, flavanoids, glycosides, phenols, saponin, steroids, terpenoids, tannins and carbohydrates. These present study help in identification and authentication of the plant material, such as information for correct identification of the plant and also will be useful in making monograph of the plant.
