Abstract :

Abstract The present work is focused to evaluate the pharmacognostic features and preliminary phytochemical profile of the Aegle marmelos (Rutaceae) and Centella asiatica (Apiaceae) leaves. In the investigation the leaves are extracted with different solvents and resulted extracts were evaluated for preliminary phytochemical investigation. They revealed the presence and absence of alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, quinones, oil&fat, sterols, phenol, strach, anthyocyanin, protein, carbohydrate, cellulose, coumarin in different leaf extracts of the selected plant. Further studies on isolation of the bioactive compounds are in progress. Key words: Aegle marmelos, Centella asiatica, preliminary phytochemical and bioactive compounds.
