Abstract

ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF MUCILAGE FROM PLANTAGO OVATA

Soni Abhishek, Thakur Hitesh*, Dr. Goyal Sachin, Shivali Singla and Priyanka Thakur

ABSTRACT

Development of new excipients is time consuming involves tedious procedures and highly expensive. Instead, identification of new uses for the existing substances is relatively and less time consuming. The intention of present study was designed for isolation and characterization of mucilage from the husk of Plantago ovata and explores its use as pharmaceutical excipients. Powder was isolated by using two different methods. The isolated powder ware investigated for purity by carrying out chemical tests for different Phytochemical constituents and only carbohydrates were found to be present. The powder was further characterized for physical and flow properties. Type 01 Powder has good swelling index 62, PH 6.6, Melting point 137, Moisture absorption 2.10, Loss on drying 1.70. The powder had good flow property as Carr’s Index 15.27, Angle of repose 29.35 and Hausnor’s ratio 1.15. From the study, it indicates that Plantago ovata’s husk powder has satisfactory PH and physicochemical Properties, which can be used as pharmaceutical excipients in formulating various dosage form.
