    Objective: In traditional medicines and ritual practices paan or betel leaf has made its key role. We have taken Piper betle L. var. Sirugamani 1 (SGM1) (Piperaceae) which is widely available in Tamil Nadu. The present work summarizes the physiochemical, preliminary phytochemical study for the leaves of this plant as well as the physiochemical characters of the isolated volatile oil from the leaves. Methods: The physiochemical studies were done on the dried leaf, the preliminary phytochemical analysis was performed for the dried leaf and also using different solvents and with relevant fluorescent studies on the powder of leaf. The physicochemical analysis was also performed on volatile oil of the leaf. Results: The preliminary phytochemical analysis shows the presence of various secondary metabolites such as tannins, sterols, flavonoids, proteins, and amino acids. Conclusions: The study gives a way to perform the various pharmacological studies based on the presence of secondary metabolites. The chavibetol present in volatile oil is very unique in betel leaf.
