Celastrus paniculatus is a member of the Celastraceae family and is commonly known as Jyotishmati or black oil plant. Celastrus paniculatus has been used extensively in the treatment of a variety of health conditions in traditional medicine. The aim of the present study was to check the presence of phytochemical constituent in ethanolic extract of leaves of Celastrus paniculatus using HPTLC analysis. The HPTLC densitometric analysis of the ethanolic extract of leaves of Celastrus paniculatus was carried out using CAMAG HPTLC system, and the results were obtained in the form of chromatograms (scanned at the wavelength of 366 nm) representing several peaks. The phytochemical profile of the plant was determined and presented in the tables showing the total number of peaks, peak heights, peak area, percent area, and Rf values.
Keywords: Celastrus paniculatus, Ethanolic extract, HPTLC.
