The poly herbal formulations containing ginger are widely used for different medicinal properties. The present paper deals with the development of spectrophotometric fingerprint for estimation of 6- Gingerol in raw materials and market formulations. However, there has been an attempt to standardize the polyherbal formulations containing 6-Gingerol as the main ingredient in terms of its active principal or marker compound. Selective and efficient analytical methods are required not only for quality assurance but also for authentication of herbal formulations. A simple, rapid and valid fingerprint method has been first carried out for estimation of 6-Gingerol in Talisadi churna an ayurvedic formulation. Talisadi churna is well known herbal formulation described in classical text Sarangdharsamhita and Ayurvedic Formulary of India. The estimation was carried out with two laboratory batches and three marketed formulation by spectrophotometric approach at 282 nm.
