Abstract:

In recent years, the population is switching towards herbal drugs as it shows less/no side effects. The standardization of herbal drugs are necessary. Clitoria annua var. emarginata. S. R. Yadav & Dhanke is traditionally called as Surguja / Charo / Jungle-wal is indigenous to India. The leaflets are known for its hepatoprotective activities. The investigation is done for the first time to develop pharmacognostical standards of the said plant part. It involves macroscopy, microscopy, histochemistry, powder study, physicochemical and phytochemical analysis. The size and shape of the leaf is an important macroscopic characters. The microscopic features, SEM microscopy, along with powder study shows the presence of glandular and non-glandular trichomes, calcium oxalate crystals, anisocytic and paracytic stomata, etc.The physicochemical analysis and extractive values showed significant results. The phytochemical and histochemical studies, have recognized the presence of secondary metabolites. Thus, these pharmacopeial standards will be useful in authentication of said drug.
