Abstract

Aloe tororoana Reynolds is recorded to grow exceptionally on the rock cliffs of Tororo rock and the adjacent Osukuru hills in Tororo district, Eastern Uganda. Due to its unique distribution pattern relative to other aloe species in the same area we postulated that it could be having unique phytochemicals. This study focused on initial qualitative phytochemical analysis of leaf gel extract from A. tororoana. Preliminary qualitative phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins, anthraquinones, flavonoids and cardiac glycosides to be present in the leave gel extract of A. tororoana. The results indicate that A. tororoanacan be a potential source of useful antimicrobial drugs.

Keywords: Medicinal plants, Aloe tororoana, phytochemicals screening.
