Author(s): Deepak Chandra Sati
Abstract: Pyracantha crenulata is an evergreen shrub grows in the range between 1000 –2600m. In Uttrakhand it is wildly spread in the Nainital, Chamoli, Uttrakashi, Tahri, Almora, Bageshawr, Champawat and Pithoragarh district. Present study focused on the microscopical characteristic of Leaves and fruits of Pyracantha crenulata. Total Ash Value of leaves is observed 5.38%. Ethanolic extract 12.5%, water extractive value 15%, loss on drying 1.16%. Total Ash value of fruits is observed 5.966. Ethanolic and water extractive value s are 10 and 12.5% respectively. LOD is 1.33% observed. Phenolic content is 50% and Flavonoid content is 35%. In the T.S section of leave various cellular component are observed which are mention below in the pic. NO (A-E).
