Abstract: Medicinal plants are assuming greater importance in the primary health care of individuals and communities in many developing countries. The bioactive components of Abelmoschus moschatus flowers have been evaluated using HPLC, UV VIS and FTIR. The phytochemical screening of Abelmoschus moschatus flowers showed that the presence of flavonoids, terpenoids, tannin, saponins, glycosides, triterpenoids, phenol, anthroquinones were present in aqueous, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts. The UV- VIS profile showed the occurrence of peaks at 207-380 nm reveals the presents of flavonoids in the Abelmoschus moschatus. The results of FTIR analysis confirmed the presence of phenol, alkanes, Alkenes, alcohol, aromatic, Aliphatic amines and amine compound. The results of this study offer a platform of using Abelmoschus moschatus flower as herbal alternative for various diseases including diabetic, cardiovascular etc. The results of this study offer a platform of using Abelmoschus moschatus flowers as herbal alternative for various diseases including cancer and diabetic.
