ABSTRACT:
Murraya koenigii (L.) Spreng belonging to family Rutaceae, commonly known as “Curry Patta” is a common ingredient in Indian curry. This plant is reported to have stimulant, antidysenteric, antidiabetic, antioxidant, hypolipidaemic and antiatherosclerotic properties. Pharmacognostical paramaters for stem bark were studied with the aim of contributing towards establishing monograph for the species. In pharmacognostical investigation examination of macroscopical, microscopical characters, fluorescence analysis and determination of various physicochemical constants like ash values, extractive values and loss on drying were carried out. Phytochemical screening included quantitative chemical examination of various solvents extracts which showed presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, tannins, saponins, steroids and flavonoids. Thus the present study was conceived to standardize the stem bark of Murraya koenigii as per WHO guidelines to determine identity, purity and for the detection of adulteration as well.
