Authors : *Rupali Taur, Shantanu Chavan and Narayan Pandhure
Abstract : Cissus quadrangularis Linn. is known for its ability to accelerate the healing process of bone fracture in Indian Ayurvedic medicinal plant. It is a rich source of vitamin C, β carotene and calcium. The plant part used in this study is stem of Cissus quadrangularis Linn. The fleshy stem are ground in a heavy duty blender and sieved through a 0.20mm sieve. The suspension obtained is suspended in distilled water. The crystals are concentrated at the bottom of a test tube. The supernatant must be washed until it is free of plant pigment and other organic substances. The calcium crystals have well defined and sharp peaks, indicating very high crystallinity. Secondly the profile shows highest peak of calcium for the first time. Peaks for chloride are the indicators of enrichment of chloride in Calcium oxalate crystals. The objective of this study is to extract, to study crystal morphology and chemical constituents of crystals.
