Abstract:
The aim of the present work was the evaluation of pharmacognostic, physiochemical parameters and phytochemical screening of stem of Duranta erecta. L for standardization and monograph development. Duranta erecta L. is commonly known as pigeon berry belongs to the family Verbenaceae, one of the therapeutically important plants, broadly distributed all throughout the world. It is commonly referred as golden dewdrop, angel whisper, pigeon berry, or skyflower. Macroscopic and microscopical evaluation revealed characters that have diagnostic value useful for identification and authentication of the plant. The Physicochemical analyses reveals values for moisture content, alcohol extractive, water extractive and total ash, acid insoluble ash and fluorescence analysis useful for standardization of plant. Phytochemical analysis shows the presence glycosides, alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids as major type of chemical constituents. Information obtained from these studies can be used as markers in the identification and standardization of this plant as a herbal remedy and also towards monograph development on the plant.
