FTIR Analysis of Siddha Drug Mahalavangathi Chooranam
Abstract: Background: The Mahalavangathi Chooranam is a polyherbal drug used for the treatment of Swasa Kaasam (Bronchial asthma), Kabam, Piththam, Pandu (Anaemia), Gunmam (Gastric ulcer), Pazhaya surankal (Chronic fever), Moolaviyathi (Piles), Arosakam (Aversion for food), Asiranam (Indigestion), Perumoochu (Hard breathing), Vikkal (Hic-cough), Kusumarogam (An unknown disease), Maarbu novu (Affection of the chest), Parisa vaayu (Paralysis). Objective: To explore the morphology and elemental characterization of the Mahalavangathi Chooranam. Materials and Methods: The ingredients were collected & purified and the drug was prepared as per Siddha literature ?Kosayi Anuboga Vythia Brahma Rahasiam Part III Pg No.81. Here the drug was subjected into characterization through FT-IR analysis. Result: FT-IR characterization shows that the presence of functional groups like, O-H stretching (alcohol), N-H stretching (primary amine), O-H stretching (carboxylic acid), O-H stretching (alcohol), C-H stretching (alkene), C-H bending (aromatic compound), C=O stretching (esters), C=O stretching (aldehyde), C=C stretching (alkene), O-H bending (carboxylic acid), O-H bending (alcohol), C-F stretching (fluoro compound), C-O stretching (aromatic ester), C-o stretching (alkyl aryl ether), N-H Wag (Primary & secondary amines), C=C bending (alkene), =C-H bending (alkene), C-Cl stretch (alkyl halides) which ensure the efficacy and therapeutic effect of the drug. Conclusion: The instrumental analysis FTIR study for Mahalavangathi Chooranam shows the presence of functional groups through the stretch and bends which is responsible for its functional activity. It consists of activities such as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial effect. Further researches want to done in Mahalavangathi Chooranam to evaluate its efficacy and drug standardization.
