Abstract: Sphaeranthus Indicus Linn Extract (Asteraceae) is widely used in Ayurvedic system of medicine to treat vitiated conditions of epilepsy, mental illness, hemicrania, jaundice, hepatopathy, diabetes, leprosy, fever, pectoralgia, cough, gastropathy, hernia, hemorrhoids, helminthiasis, dyspepsia and skin diseases. The aim of the present study was a preliminary phytochemical and thin layer chromatography (TLC) analysis of the various extracts of Spheranthus Indicus Linn. Phytochemical analysis was carried out using the standard phytochemical assays. TLC analysis of the chloroform and ethanol extract of the leaves was carried out using the solvent system Ethanol: Chloroform (9:1) and Ethanol: Hexane (3:7), respectively. The findings of the preliminary phytochemical screening revealed the presence of various chemical compounds like alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, carbohydrates, tannins, phenols, fixed oil and fats. The three Rf value (0.59, 0.78 & 0.94) and six Rf value (0.05, 0.21, 0.34, 0.51, 0.65 & 0.87) were found in TLC plate of chloroform and ethanol extracts, respectively. These studies provided referential information in regard to its identification parameters assumed significantly in the way of acceptability of herbal drugs in present scenario of lack of regulatory laws to control quality of herbal drugs.
