Abstract


Histochemical analysis provides a best tool for the botanical identification and standardisation of crude drugs. The present study deals with the histochemical analysis of leaf and rhizome of the C. neilgherrensis. The study reveals the identification and location of the phytochemicals like alkaloids, saponins, tannins, oils, starch grains etc in various regions of leaf and rhizome of C. neilgherrensis. Free hand sections were taken and treated with respective reagents to localise the various cellular components. The observations could be of great use in chemotaxonomy and checking the drug adulteration.
