The physico-chemical parameters such as loss on drying at 105ºC, total ash, water soluble ash, acid insoluble ash, water & alcohol soluble extractives and pH of 10 % water extract and preliminary phytochemicals were analysed.
Keywords: Chuntaivatral chooranam, identification, physico-chemical parameters, phytochemical analysis, TLC, HPTLC.
