  • Abstract

    Pharmacognostical characters of the leaves of Bauhinia variegata Linn was studied which showed the presence of thin walled epidermis, parenchymatous cells, abundant solitary calcium oxalate crystals, vascular bundles and multicellular covering trichomes. Leaf constant viz., stomatal index -5.27, vein islet number - 8.3, vein termination - 6.6, palisade ratio -7.6 were also studied. Physiochemical parameter such as total ash - 8 % w/w, water soluble ash value-2 % w/w, acid insoluble ash value - 6 % w/w, alcohol extractive value- 8 % w/w, water soluble extractive value -18.4 % w/w and loss on drying - 7 % w/w were also determined. Phytochemical screening showed the presence of steroids, saponins, flavonoids, alkaloids and tannins.
