Abstract: Origin of the most of the modern day pharmaceuticals can be traced to natural compounds. Herbal pharmaceutical industry suffers from inadequate knowledge of active constituents, their efficacy and dosage. The emerging recognition of herbals and recent development in analytical science, are gradually leading to the development standardized parameters for herbal evaluation. Derris heyneana (Wight and Arn.) Benth. is less known woody climber collected from western ghats region of India. Preliminary phytochemical analysis to detect the presence of various secondary metabolites was performed in six solvents of varying polarity. HPTLC fingerprint and FTIR spectra may be utilized for the purpose of authentication and identification of the crude plant drug by the pharmaceutical industry.
