In the last few decades, there has been an exponential growth in the field of herbal medicines. It is getting popularized in developing and developed countries owing to their natural origin and lesser side effects. Herbal extracts are the compound mixtures obtained from fresh or dry plants by different extraction procedures. Apart from conventional methods of extraction, there are several other techniques such as supercritical fluid extraction, soxhlet assisted extraction, microwave extraction in order to shorten the extraction time, decrease in solvent consumption, increasing the yield and also to enhance quality of the extract. It also minimizes risk of decomposition and oxidation of phytopharmaceuticals. The present work aims to study pharmacognostical and phytochemical characteristics and also to compair the microwave assisted extraction with conventional methods of extraction of Daucus carota roots. This study will be useful for the standardization and further pharmacological and therapeutic evaluation of Dacus carrota.
