ABSTRACT:
The alkaloid, allicin, glycoside and saponin levels of the leaves of Sansevieria senegambica were determined by gas liquid chromatography. The leaves are rich in alkaloids (93.76mg/kg wet weight and 293.91 mg/kg dry weight), with low allicin (1.2115 mg/kg wet weight and 3.7979 mg/kg dry weight) and saponin (0.94978 mg/kg wet weight and 2.97737 mg/kg dry weight), and very low glycoside (0.02547 mg/kg wet weight and 0.07985 mg/kg dry weight) contents. Twelve alkaloids were detected, consisting mainly of ambelline (about 24.39%), 6-hydoxybuphanidrine (18.10%) and crinamidine (17.73%). Of the three allicins detected, diallylthiosulphinate (about 52.70%) was the most abundant, while the most abundant saponin was avenacins B-1 (about 37.75%). These results show that the leaves are rich in alkaloids, lending credence to their use for medicinal purposes.
