Standardization of Ayurvedic formulation was a need of present era. Rasa Acharya was well known about the toxic effect produce due to use of Mineral & Herbal drugs in their impure form.

In this study we carried out purification of Hingul according to kshalan method & Vatsanabh in gomutra and after using it in Hinguleshwar rasa we try to find out what happened during the purification & trituration process. For this we did FEG-SEM, XRD & HPTLC of drugs and formulation. In XRD test we not found any structural changes before and after Purification of Hingul as well as purified Hingul use in Hinguleshwar rasa. In FEG-SEM we found different images of samples. (HPTLC) Finger print analysis helps to check quality of formulation as well as it was used for batch to batch consistency. Because of its reliability and simplicity it is used as a tool for quality control of formulation. Hence this study concluded that FEG-SEM, XRD & HPTLC helps in Standardization of Hinguleshwar rasa.
