The present study was carried out to explore the therapeutic potential of Abutilon hirtum (Lam.) Sweet (Malvaceae). The trace elements were determined using Energy dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and functional groups analysis with FT-IR spectroscopy technique. The ethyl acetate extract of the aerial parts reveals the presence of alkyl, carbonyl, aromatic and cyclic alcohol groups. The weight percentage of trace element concentration obtained from energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) attached to SEM shows the presence of oxygen, magnesium, silicon, phosphate, chloride and potassium. These findings strongly establish the medicinal potential of A. hirtum.
