Abstract
Various traditional systems of medicine enlightened the importance of the leaves of Pentalinon luteum (Apocynacea) to have a great medicinal value. The present study was aimed at pharmacognostic and preliminary phytochemical evaluations of Pentalinon luteum leaves. The pharmacognostic investigations were carried out in terms of organoleptic, microscopic and physical parameters. The dried leaves were subjected to maceration using ethanol. These solvent extracts were subjected to a preliminary phytochemical screening to detect the different chemical principles present viz., carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, steroids, glycosides, alkaloids, tannins and phenolic compounds. The phytochemical evaluation revealed the presence carbohydrates, aminoacids, glycosides, flavanoids, tannins and phenolic compounds, alkaloids and saponins and absence of proteins and steroids.
