Physico-Chemical Study of Foliar Chemicals of Neem (Azadirachta Indica A. Juss) in Different Seasons, around Amarkantak Thermal Power Plant, Chachai (Madhya Pradesh) India

Ashok Kumar Tripathi, M. K. Bhatnagar

This study investigated the seasonal variation in foliar chemicals of Neem (Azadirachta Indica A. Juss.) nearby areas of Amarkantak Thermal Power Plant, chachai Madhya Pradesh which is situated at 23 1004 N and 813915 E in Survey of India toposheet nos. 64E, 64F & 64 I. Neem is the most popular medicinal plant having a long series of antibiotic drug properties. The quantitative estimation of foliar chemical may lead to the significant use of natural products for medicinal, social and research areas. The present study carried out with standard Laboratory and instrumental methods of Elemental analysis. The neem tree was selected in Amarkantak Thermal Power Station (ATPS) Colony, Chachai (MP), on the basis of morphological characteristic. Chlorophyll was estimated from fresh leaves by using Spectrophotometer while protein, polyphenols, carbohydrates, Nitrogen and phosphorus were quantified from dried leaves by using UV-VIS Spectrophotometer. Elemental composition of Sodium, Potassium and Calcium were quantified by flam photometry. Study concludes that all foliar chemicals were found to be significantly different in different months of year. Protein content was found maximum in February (8.11 %) while minimum observed in the month of July (3.48 %), Polyphenols content was found maximum in Month of April (7.06 %) and minimum in the month of September (4.35 %), carbohydrate Max. found in February (9.70 %) and Min. observed in October (4.50 %). Although significant variation (P
