Classification of phytochemistry

In our view, phytochemistry can be divided into two classes:

1. Conventional or traditional phytochemistry.

2. Medicinal or applied phytochemistry.

Conventional phytochemistry, adopts procedures for isolation and purification of active constituents of medicinal plants. The study of this discipline is of more relevance to the pharmaceutical industry. A detailed discussion of conventional phytochemical techniques is beyond the scope of this book. Medicinal phytochemistry is emerging as a new subject keeping in mind recent trends in phytotherapy. This subject is of interest to medical and herbal professionals. Recently, some institutes have introduced courses or modules on herbal medicine or phytotherapy in the regular medical syllabus.
