Abstract

Tiliacora racemosa commonly known as Perungkattukodi in Tamil, has been used in many Ayurvedic preparations and is also a plant of ethnomedicinal use. In the present study, histochemical localization of various primary and secondary metabolites of leaf and stem of Tiliacora racemosa was carried out with the aim of contributing to its quality control in herbal industries. The various metabolites such as carbohydrates, starch, proteins, alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, tannins, saponins and lipids were localized using various specific chemical reagents microscopically. The results of this study could be useful for identification of the plant species and also for the determination of the authenticity of the drug in herbal industry.
