ABSTRACT

The present study has given more importance to the leaf drug of the plant Celestrus emarginata of to family Celestraceae and was collected from the forest areas of Adilabad District. The study has revealed that some medicinally important plants have been used by Gondu tribal community. The plant leaf extract is given to increase male sex vigour in human beings, which opened a new scope to take up the present research. In the process of research in order to standardize the leaf drug of the plant, the leaves of the plant were studied for micro morphological studies of the epidermal, stomatal, costal cells and trichomes if any, colour characterization, heavy metal analysis and phytochemical screening by using the standard Pharmacognosy protocols. The study revealed that the shapes Of the epidermal cells are polygonal aniso diametric non-linear on both adaxial and abaxial surface further; stomata were observed to be anisocytic type. The leaf powder residue in 10% H2SO4 and in alcohol are observed to be similar in colour. The results of heavy metal analysis are much lower than the WHO prescribed standards. The phytochemicals like alkaloids, glycosides, phenols, resins and quinones are maximum in their presence. Considering the above characteristic specific features of the plant there is an utmost importance to standardize the leaf drug for checking the adulteration and for further drug formulation research.

Keywords: Celestrus emarginata, medicinal plant, Phytochemistry, phytochemistry micro morphology, Adilabad District.
