ABSTRACT

 Moringa oleifera has been identified as a rich ornamental plant naturally foriried with both organic and inorganic compounds used for medicinal purposes, nutraceutical food supplements and chemical entities for drug synthesis. This study was carried out to analyze the phytochemical properties of Moringa oleifera using extraction process; ethanol, n- hexane. l'tllyl acetate and water on the leave of M.oleifera. The extraction process was carried out after the leaves were collected, washed, dried at room temperature (27°C) and grounded into powder using iron blender. The grounded leaf was weighted and soaked in four different !>Olve111: ethanol, ethyl acetate, n- hexane and water for 24hours. After which, the solvent were filtered in each case to recover the extract, the qualitative analysis was carried out on the extract. Thi! qualitative analysis was carried out from the extract which shows that M.oleifera contains sap@OllF, flavonoids, tannins, phenol, steroids and glycoside. The quantitative analysis revealed that flavonoid had the highest ( 10.9%) by mass of the total phytochemical, follo" l.!.:I by Alkaloids (5.00%), Phenol (0.80%), Saponin (0.70%), and Tannins (0.08%) respectively Clycosides ha0 the lowest percentage (0.01%) by mass of phytochemical present in th·.! s:.idi.:d leaves of M.oleifera.
