Phytochemistry is the branch of science which deals with the study of phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are derived from two words Phyto means “Plant” and chemicals are the different secondary metabolites of plants. Plants use these secondary metabolites for their protection and they have numerous medicinal properties for human consumers.
Phytochemistry is a smaller class of bigger classes like Botany or Chemistry. The application of Phytochemistry is mainly in Pharmacognosy and to study the physiology of plants. The main examples of secondary metabolites are: Alkaloids, glycosides, saponins etc.
In Phytochemistry, generally extraction procedures have been done. Phytochemicals are extracted from different parts of plants and used for various purposes. The main techniques used for extraction are: chromatographic techniques (example: HPLC, GC, LC-MS etc. after extraction and isolation next step is structural elucidation of chemical moiety isolated, we’ll do it with the help of spectroscopic techniques. The main spectrophotometers used for structural elucidation purpose is Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectrophotometer (MS), and infrared spectrophotometer (IR).
Hydrogen-NMR tells about how many types of hydrogen are present in chemical moiety, mass spectrophotometer tells about possible moieties formed after fragmentation of chemical moiety. Infrared spectrophotometer tells about different types of functional groups present in the moiety. These instruments form spectra and from this spectrum we can predict the structure of the molecule. After structural elucidation, we can predict he properties of the molecule and therefore we can use the same molecule as we need.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

The global chemical industry is expected to grow from $4 trillion to $5.3 trillion by 2020. According to a 2011 report from Pike Research, Green Chemistry represents a market opportunity that will grow dramatically from $2.8 billion in 2011 to $98.5 billion by 2020. The same report also estimates that Green Chemistry is forecast to save industry $65.5 billion by 2020. a part of the $5.3 trillion US chemical industry.
