Author(s): Jaya Gupta, Amit Gupta, A.K. Gupta
Abstract: The stem bark of Moringa oleifera were digested with HNO3 and HClO4 (4:1) and the contents of trace elements such as As, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Ni, Mn, Pb, and Zn were determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The presence of beneficial element i.e., Fe, Zn, K, Mg, Mn, Ca, Co, Ni are within limit. The concentration of heavy trace elements Cr, Cd and Pb are within limit, but the concentration of Cu and as are high.
