The present study was aimed to explore the phytochemical constituents present in Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J.Ag. collected from the south east coast of Tamil Nadu, India. The phytochemical screening of different extracts was estimated using the standard procedure for UV-Vis spectroscopic and HPLC. The UV-Vis phytochemical profile of various extracts of Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J.Ag. was analyzed. The qualitative HPLC fingerprint profile of methanol extract of Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J.Ag. was selected at a wavelength of 254 nm due to sharpness of the peaks and proper baseline. The profile displayed one prominent peak at a retention time of 1.953 min and some moderate peaks were observed at a retention time of 3.000, 2.570 and 2.467 min respectively. The present study on Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J.Ag. produced novel phytochemical markers in standardization as useful analytical tools to check not only the quality of the powder but also the presence of adulterants in ayurvedic drugs.

Keywords: Phytochemistry, Seaweeds, Turbinaria ornata, UV-Vis, HPLC.
