Abstract

The main objective of our present study was to screen the presence of different phytoconstituent in the extract of cyperus rotundus tubers. The phytoconstituent is analysed by thin layer chromatography by using suitable reagents. The anthelmintic activitys evaluated in various extract of cyperus rotundus tubers has been investigated in bio-assay by using albendazole as reference drug to estimate the time of paralysis and death of the worms. The ethanol extract is showed more potent in compare to other extract for paralysis and kill the worms.
