Pharmacognostical investigation and phytochemical screening of ‎the ‎leaves of Malvastrum coromandelianum (L.) Garcke‎ ‎

Akshay R Yadav ‎

In current research, Malvastrum Coromandelianum plants have been subjected to ‎macroscopic and microscopic studies. Microscopic features revealed that the leaf was dorsiventral. Two types of trichomes were observed: sessile, ‎unicellular, uniserated, and bi-cellular glandular head covering. The vascular ‎bundle was coated with spongy parenchyma. Alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, ‎carbohydrates, and saponins were detected by phytochemical screening.‎
