PHARMACOGNOSTIC AND PHYTOCHEMICAL EVALUATION OF STROBILANTHES SESSILIS NEES. LEAVESAbstract
Strobilanthes sessilis Nees is a small perennial shrub, found on Kas plateau of the Western Ghats in India. Its standardized Marathi name is Mal Karvy. This shrub belongs to the genus Strobilanthes which was first scientifically described by Nees in the 19th century. Scientific information on its Pharmacognosy, Phytochemistry is very scant. Hence, the current study describes some Pharmacognostical, Physiochemical and Phytochemical investigations undertaken on the leaves of one of the species of the genus Strobilanthes, namely Strobilanthes sessilis Nees belonging to the family Acanthaceae. The present investigation was undertaken for research with an objective of drawing attention on those scarce species as well as a reference for further scientific investigations.
