Abstract: Operculina turpethum L. is a perennial medicinal plant of the family Convolvulaceae. Since ages, the plant has been used for the treatment of various diseases. The present study was an attempt to analyses physicochemical parameters of different plant parts of Operculina turpethum L. according to the standard procedures. Use of the plant for treating various types of diseases is mentioned in Ayurvedic treatise like Charaka Samhita. But there were no sufficient reports regarding all plant parts of the plant. So the current comparative study was designed and conducted to evaluate the physicochemical evaluation of leaf, stem, root, flower and fruit of Operculina turpethum L.
