Abstract: The present study was taken to evaluate the pharmacognostic and phytochemical profile of Neptunia prostrata L., to access the quality standards. Various parameters like macroscopic and microscopic characters, physical constant values, behavior of powdered drug on treatment with different chemical reagents, fluorescence characteristics (under UV lamp at 366 nm) of the powder after treatment with different chemical reagents etc. were studied. Preliminary phytochemical screening and thin layer chromatography of different extractives has also been performed. These studies will help in future for identifying this plant for further research.
