Cardiospermum halicacabum is one of the most potent medicinal plants used in Indian traditional systems of medicine for the treatment of various diseases, mainly for arthritis. Apigenin is one of the major constituent present in Cardiospermum halicacabum. The present study mainly aimed to estimate the content of major constituent apigenin present in Cardiospermum halicacabum collected from 21 districts of Tamil Nadu by HPTLC method using the marker compound apigenin. The HPTLC method was performed using HPTLC aluminium sheets precoated with Silica Gel 60 GF254 as stationary phase and Toluene: Ethyl acetate: formic acid: methanol (3:6:1.6:0.4 v/v) as the mobile phase. The developed chromatogram was scanned at 254nm using Camag Scanner III. The Rf value of standard apigenin and apigenin in the leaf extract of Cardiospermum halicacabum was found to be in the range of 0.80 to 0.89. Plant collected from Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu was found to contain relatively high amount of marker compound apigenin than other regions.
