Abstract: The objective of the present study is to evaluate phytochemical composition and HPTLC finger print profile of medicinally useful plant Mimusops elengi L. (Sapotaceae) leaf n-hexane extract. The CAMAG HPTLC system was used for the finger print profiling of leaf extract using the mobile phase toluene: ethyl acetate (93:7 v/v). The profile showed that the leaf extract of M.elengi exhibited several peaks with different Rf values when visualized at 254nm and 366 nm. At 254 nm a total 8 peaks were observed and at 366 nm 7 peaks were observed. The HPTLC profile of M.elengi leaf n-hexane extract is used to identify the number of chemical components and their concentration, this in turn helps to identify the chemical constituents in medicinal products and also in identification of adulterants in medicinal products mainly herbal medicine.
