Pharmacognostical standardization and preliminary phytochemical screening of Cissampelos pareira Linn. var. Hirsuta Roots

Author(s): Vandana G. Patel, Sangita H. Shukla, Bhavika V. Jogi, Hemali A. Mistry
Abstract: Cissampelos pareira Linn. var. hirsuta belongs to family Menispermaceae. It is commonly known as venivel. The present study was undertaken to carry out pharmacognostical and phytochemical investigation of the roots of the plant. Different pharmacognostical parameters studied were macroscopy and microscopy, fluorescence analysis, physicochemical analysis and elemental analysis. Phytochemical analysis included preliminary screening and qualitative chemical tests for identification of the chemical constituents present in the roots. In the light of the above factors, the purpose of the study was to set up the standardization parameters which can be of immense value for the identification of the genuine drug.
