ABSTRACT:
The present work aims to study the pharmacognostical and phytochemical characteristics of the roots of Aconitum heterophyllum. The study deals with the macroscopy, microscopy, powder analysis, physicochemical standardization, and preliminary phytochemical screening of Aconitum heterophyllum roots. Anatomical studies of the tuberous roots of Aconitum heterophyllum showed distinct endodermis, a wide zone of secondary phloem, and a ring of 4 to 9 vascular strands. The powder analysis revealed the presence of suberized cells of metaderm, reticulate xylem vessels, and starch grains. Physicochemical standardization such as moisture content, ash values, and extractive values of Aconitum heterophylluym was determined. For the identification of various chemical constituents, preliminary phytochemical screening was also studied.
