  PHARMACOGNOSTIC EVALUATION AND PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF SEEDS OF VIGNA MUNGO (L.) HEPPER
   

Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper belonging to the family Fabaceae (Papilionaceae) commonly known as Black gram or Urd. It is an erect hairy annual plant with long twining branches, flowers are small and yellow in color; fruits are cylindrical and pods are hairy containing 1-4 seeds per pod. The present study provides updated information on its pharmacognostic, phytochemical analysis and pharmacological properties. The phytochemical analysis of the powdered seeds revealed the presence of carbohydrates, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, alkaloids, steroids and vitamin C qualitatively, whereas flavonoids was analysed quantitatively too. It can be used medicinally as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, ulcerogenic, hypoglycemic, hepatoprotective, immunostimulatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, narcotic activity. Differential extraction yielded aqueous extract 40.16%, methanol extract 15.50%, ethanol extract 12.07%, chloroform extract 9.88%, petroleum ether extract 0.34%  and Quantitative pharmacognostic analysis gave moisture content 14.60%, alcohol extractive value 4.00%, water extractive value 23.6%, chloroform extractive value 2.80%, petroleum ether extractive value 0.8%, total ash 2.5%, acid–insoluble ash 0.50% and water soluble ash 1.0%. Water soluble extractives are more than alcohol soluble extractives show more water soluble constituents in the seeds.
