Interpretation of Chanaka Yoga by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy

K R C Reddy


Aim: To evaluate possible interaction in Chanaka Yoga, which is used in Prameha Prakaran. Materials and Methods: For IR scanning, the samples were mixed with KBr in proportion to 1:100 ratio and compressed to form pellet using hydraulic compression machine. All the samples were analyzed for variation in the functional group and bonding pattern since the final sample is the mixture of all the six ingredients. Results and Discussion: The peaks found in FTIR spectra of Chanaka Yoga shows the presence of hydrogen-bonded alcohol and phenols, hydrogen-bonded acid, aldehydes and ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons, ketones, esters and aldehydes, alcohol and ether, alkenes and alkenes. Conclusion: Peaks of Chanaka Yoga were found similar in pattern, and the absorbance corresponding to the allotted chemical constituents was similar with the ingredients analyzed separately. This study shows a pathway for the chemical basis of similarity in a pattern in inference when ayurvedic formulation has a multi-ingredient concept
