Herbals play an immense role in the primary health needs of local communities in developing countries. Nowadays, there is renewed interest in medicinal plants that have emerged because of their availability and less or nontoxic nature. The therapeutic potential of leaf and stem extracts of Tinospora crispa were analyzed by FTIR and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Major active molecules in the stem and leaf extract were interpreted using their functional groups. The peak (cm-1), intensity, corresponding intensity, base (H), base (L), area and corresponding area obtained from FTIR spectra data confirmed the presence of phenol, alkanes, aldehyde, secondary alcohol, amino acid, aromatic amines and halogens. The IR peak at 2800 to 2900 cm-1 refers to the presence of alkanes (C-H stretch), peak at 1700 to 1600 cm-1 corresponds the carboxylic acid group (C = O stretch), peak at 1500 cm-1 denotes the 1 ° amines (N-H bend), peak of 1300 to 1200 cm-1 showed the presence of aromatic amines (C-N stretch), peaks of 1200 to 1100 cm-1 indicate the alcohols, carboxylic acids, esters, ethers (C-O stretch). A peak of 600 -800 cm-1 revealed the alkenes (=C-H bend). Prominent UV-visible spectra peaks at 222, 350, 361, 317 nm, and 408 nm with the corresponding absorption reveal the presents of polyphenolic and alkaloids. Thus, the results of the present study provide a platform for using T. crispa leaves and stem as herbal alternative having multiple therapeutic potentials like anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, cytotoxic, antimalarial, cardioprotective, and anti-diabetic potentialities.
