ABSTRACT:
Plumeria alba Linn (Apocynaceae) is used in the treatment of ulcers, herpes, scabies and seeds possess haemostatic properties. The bark is bruised as plaster over hard tumours. Only a very limited research has been carried out on the plant, under the present study assumes singular significance and it is supposed to contribute a great deal to the existing literature. The present paper highlights the macroscopic and microscopic characters of leaf, petiole, physico chemical evaluation and preliminary phytochemical studies of the plant (leaves). These observations would be of immense value in the botanical identification and standardization of the drug in crude form. This study would help distinguish the drug from its other species.
