MACROSCOPICAL, MICROSCOPICAL AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL STUDIES ON LEAVES OF DALBERGIA SISSOO LINN. (FABACEAE)Abstract
Objective: To rationalize the macroscopial, anatomical and physico-chemical studies on leaves of plant Dalbergia sissoo Linn. (Fabaceae). Methods: The crude ethanolic extract of leaves of Dalbergia sissoo Linn. (Fabaceae) was using physico-chemical parameters, fluorescence analysis, and preliminary phytochemical investigation (TLC, HPTLC, column chromatography). Results: An attempt has been made to highlight this folk herbal medicine through present study which will assist in the identification of fresh as well as dried crude samples of leaves anatomically and physiochemically. TLC fingerprint profiling and fluorescence analysis of powdered leaves were also carried out and the salient qualitative and quantitative parameters are reported. Conclusions: The present study will provide referential information for correct identification and help in checking adulteration in market samples used in the preparation of various herbal medicines. The present observation will also be helpful in macroscopical, microscopical and physiochemical studies on leaves of Dalbergia sissoo Linn.(Fabaceae).
