Abstract

  Extracts obtained from different parts of the plants are reported to exhibit therapeutic potential due to presence of different phytochemical compounds. The extracts plant leaves, stem, seeds, flowers, fruits and roots of so many medicinal plants and weeds have been found to contain antibacterial and therapeutic potential. However, not much work has been conducted with the extracts of Argemone mexicana, Solanum xanthocarpum and Thevetia peruviana. This article presents a recent account of preparation of extracts from different parts of these plants, their chemical and biochemical characterization and future perspectives.

Keywords: Argemone mexicana; Solanum xanthocarpum; Thevetia peruviana
