ABSTRACT

 

Peucedanum grande is a succulent herb; about a meter in height. The fruits are used in medicine and have been reported to possess important biological properties. The objective of the present investigation was the development of quality standards and phytochemical analysis of P. grande. This included morphological and histological characters, pH of aqueous solution, ash values, extractive values, successive extractive values, and loss on drying, fluorescence analysis, preliminary phytochemical screening and HPTLC finger printing profile of secondary metabolites. The findings of this study might be useful to supplement information in regard to its identification parameters and laying down pharmacopoeial standards; as standardization of herbal medicines is essential and is the need of the today.

Key words: Peucedanum grande, extracts, phytochemical screening, HPTLC.
