Biophysical Properties and Finger Print of Boswellia Sp. Burseraceae

S H Alotaibi. Saudi J Biol Sci.

Abstract

For the first time a finger print analysis via high-performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) of Boswellia Sp. Burseraceae was accomplished. A preliminary investigation of the Boswellia Sp. Burseraceae displayed the presence of chemical constituents that could be involved in the production of innovative pharmaceuticals for an array of antiviral, anticancer, and antibacterial uses. Moreover, the finger print analysis would deem useful for establishing HPTLC standardization for natural and herbal photochemical constituents.

Keywords: Boswellia Sp. Burseraceae; HPTLC; Pharmaceuticals.
