Are you ready for some amazing Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) related to phytochemistry with answers? If you are preparing to be a phytochemist or are already in this field, you should definitely play this quiz. Phytochemistry is the study of the chemicals derived from plants known as phytochemicals. These chemicals play a vital role in the growth and development of plants. Let's learn about it in detail here with the following quiz. Take the test, then.
Tragacanth is the "air-hardened gummy exudate flowing naturally or obtained by incision, from the trunk & branches of Astragalus gummifer
Gums are generally normal products of metabolism formed within the cell (intracellular formation).
Mucilages are used for storage material
Mucilages are generally normal products of metabolism formed within the cell (intracellular formation).
Gums & mucilage have similar constitutions and on hydrolysis yield a mixture of sugars & uronic acids.
Found in all plants families
They are universal products
Glucose is the first product
All plants having chlorophyll producing them
They are restricted to genus, 'S species or family.

Gum and mucilage
Saturated fatty acids
Inulin is used as a Renal Function Testing
The beta-linkage of cellulose is not hydrolyzed by the mammalian enzyme system, it is hydrolyzed by cellulase, which produced by microorganism.
Activated charcoal is a good adsorbent at trapping chemicals, gases and prevents their absorption
