Résumé
This study is designed to compare the phytochemical compounds using thin layer chromatographic techniques. These two provinces fall on different altitudes in the country and experience different and unique climatic conditions/weather conditions and the vegetation types found in each area are evidence that their type of vegetation is different.
Specific objectives of the study 1. To collect Aloe ferox growing in Eastern Cape and Western Cape. 2. To analyse and compare the Aloe ferox from the two areas for their phytochemicals such as phenols, flavonoids, flavonols, proanthocyanidins, tannins, alkaloids and saponins. 3. To carry out thin layer chromatography of both the dried and fresh Aloe ferox from both regions using different mobile and stationary phases.
