Abstract: Tamalapatra (leaves of C. tamala) is one among such important commodity used in the preparation of many Ayurvedic medicines. Leaves of C. sulphuratum are sometimes used as substitute to tamalapatra as a flavoring agent. Comprehensive chemical fingerprint profile is useful in the identification of any plant material. This investigation is an attempt to fingerprint the chemical characteristics of leaf of C. sulphuratum. Leaves from plants of C. sulphuratum growing wildly in Kodagu district were collected and subjected to physico-chemical, HPTLC and GC-MS analysis as per standard procedures. Physico-chemical constants, HPTLC fingerprint and essential oil composition were documented. The chemical fingerprint established in the present study will serve the purpose of standardization of this leaf drug, volatile oil composition by GCMS will be a diagnostic test for differentiation of leaves of C. sulphuratum from other Cinnamomum sp.
