Abstract: Tephrosia purpurea (L) Pers. Belongs to family Leguminosae, Popularly known as "Sarapunkha" in Sanskrit, "Wild indigo" in English and "Kolinji" in Tamil. Tephrosia purpurea (L) Pers. has been used for centuries in the Indian traditional medicine. It possesses various pharmacological activities like anti-diabetic, anti-epileptic, anti-carcinogenic, anti- microbial, anti- inflammatory, analgesic, anti-ulcer, anti- hyperlipidemic, immunomodulatory, hepatoprotective and wound healing. The present work deals with the fractionation of hydroalcoholic extract with different organic solvents. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of flavanoids, glycosides, phenols, tannins, saponins and alkaloids. Chromatographic evaluation of hydroalcoholic extract and its fractions using HPTLC. The findings of this study highlight the status of secondary metabolites present in Tephrosia purpurea that will help us correlate the metabolites to the wide spectrum of its traditional uses.

Keywords: Tephrosia purpurea. HPTLC
