The present work deals with the preliminary pharmacognostical studies on the stem bark Shigru (Moringa oleifera Lamk.). Macroscopical and Microscopical Characters, physio-chemical constants, quantitative microscopy parameters, extractive values, TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography) and HPTLC were studied. Preliminary Phytochemical screening of stem bark of Shigru (Moringa oleifera Lamk.) was studied. The purpose of all these footprints will assist future researchers in their Phytochemical as well as Pharmacological analysis of this species.
