Abstract

Fingerprint profile of   bark extract of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis using High Performance Thin Layer chromatography (HPTLC) has been established. HPTLC is a valuable tool for the investigation of medicinal plants with reference to the qualitative analysis of the phytoconstituents. Separation of the active constituents from the extracts has been developed using solvent system of Toluene: Ethyl acetate: Formic acid (5:4:1). The HPTLC analysis showed the presence of the flavonoid quercetin in the standard as well  as in the sample  and the  Rf value was  0.73. These images of fingerprinting help in the proper identification and quantification of the   marker compounds. On the basis of the marker compounds, new drugs could be formulated to treat various diseases
