CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF BLUMEA LACERA AND IDENTIFICATION OF ITS BIOACTIVE CONSTITUENTS BY GC-MS TECHNIQUESagar Kumar and Satyendra Kumar
Plants are main sources of chemical constituents. A lot of organic, Inorganic, biomolecules have been isolated from the plants. Plants have effective value in different type of diseases in the plants and also animals. They are used as pesticides and insecticides. Indigenous plant plays an important role in biocontrol against the pesticides and insecticides. Destruction of stored grain or stored products by pest is a world wide problem. There are about more than two hundred insects which attack the store grain and its product. Scientists have been working to protect the insects by the indigenous plant extracts, therefore there is less effects on the users. The farmer uses the different type of extracts of plant to kill the insects like tobacco extracts, Azadirachta extracts (Neem) and some member of compositae like Blumea species. In the present paper we report the isolation and identification of bioactive constituents from the plants of Blumea lacera.
