Dr. D. Sukumar, B. Anandhi

Abstract :

Mussaenda is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family. They are native to the African and Asian tropics and subtropics. Several species are cultivated as ornamental plants.

Mussaenda glaata popularly known  in Siddha/Tamil  Vellai–yilai, Velli– madandai.  The fresh  flowers have been found to contain the flavonol glycoside : rutin.  The structure of the isolated yellow pigment has been characterized by means of modern physical methods like UV, 1H–NMR, 13C–NMR, chemical reactions, hydrolytic studies and chromatographic investigations.  The  isolated rutin is found to contain  considerable anti–inflammatory activity.
