The present study is designed to determine the Pharmacognostical and preliminary phytochemical studies of Memecylon edule. Roxb (Melastomataceae). Pharmacognostical studies involve the Microscopy- transverse section of leaf, powder analysis, phyto chemical studies revealed the presence of carbohydrates, gums and mucilage, tannins and saponins. Physico chemical evaluation includes ash values, extractive values, moisture content, fluorescence analysis. These findings will be useful towards establishing standards on identification, purity, quality and classification of the plant, which is gaining relevance in the plant drug research.
