Abstract

Aim and Objective: The aim of the study is to validate the heavy metal analysis of a Siddha formulation “Anda Thailam” (AT) through a scientific technique inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometric analysis (ICP-OES), FTIR and PHYSICO CHEMICAL ANALYSIS was done in sophisticated analytical instrument facility IITM, Chennai-36. “Anda Thailam” is one of the Siddha drug chosen from the Siddha classical literature Noi neekum thailangal by Siddha saraba naagai shanmugaanantha swamikal,for   Mantham ,Sanni, Valippu and Pakkavatham  page no:95 There is a necessary for the analysis of heavy metal analysis before implementation of the trial drug to the clinical trial. Thus an attempt was made to screen the heavy metal analysis of the Siddha preparation of “Anda Thailam” through the scientific method of ICP-OES analysis of indicates the presence of Carbon-11.234mg/L, Calcium-02.180mg/L, Chlorine-01.100mg/L, Iron-03.376mg/L, Phosphorus-106.341mg/L, Sulfur-01.254mg/L and Zinc-01.018mg/L. In FTIR the   functional groups such as halo compounds and Alcohol were presents in the Anda thailam can be correlated with the management of Pakkavatham,Sanni and Mantham.
