Electrochemical study of chemical constituents of Rauwolfia serpentina
Author(s): Alka Rani Bunker
Abstract: The electrochemical study of herbal xerophytic plants of Apocynaceae family have been studied in vivo and vitro conditions with three electrode pairs in three different seasons. The electrical activity in living cells was determined by measuring their bio-electrode potential regulating several vital physiological processes and also maintaining the photo-electron transport activity in plants. The effect of catalyst (CuSO4), respiratory substrate C6H12O6 and primary salts have been studied. The origin of bio-electrode potential (BEP) developed due to formation of charge transfer complex, depends upon the availability of ions permeable at surface cuticle of the leaf. Various graphs were plotted to co-relate the results. The analysis of chlorophylls, amino acids etc. have also been made and activity was discussed.
