The plant Marsdenia tenacissima is traditionally used in vario us diseases.The present study deals with pharmacognostic, preliminary photochemical and pharmacological investigations of Marsdenia tenacissima. In this, pharmacognostical studies are concerned for the determination of physicochemical constants like ash values, extractive values, and loss on drying .The roots were subjected to soxhlation using petroleum ether, alcohol, water and the extracts thus obtained were studied for preliminary photochemical screening for detection of presence of various classes of chemical principles viz., carbohydrates, proteins, steroids, glycosides, alkaloids, tannins, saponins, flavonoids and lignin and its anti-oxidant activity.
