Estimation of Trace Element Concentrations in Anti-Epileptic Medicinal Plants by Using EDXRF

N.Giridhar Babu | Ch.Ch.Srinivasu | T.Pothu Raju | N.Lakshmana Das

Abstract: Trace elemental analysis was carried out in 15 anti-epileptic medicinal plants using Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) technique, with EX-3600, EDXRF spectrometer. The quantitative analysis is carried out using the software nEXT. The concentrations of elements like P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Br, Se, Rb, and Sr were estimated. The presence of some of these trace elements is correlated with the anti-epileptic curative property of medicinal plants.
