Phytomedicines are now an important area of better treatment and high prospects in many countries these medicinal herbs are found in tropical and subtropical areas and it is an erect, branched herb usually 2 to 3 m in height. The members of this species are annual and perennial. The leaves of the plant are alternate, paripinnate compound and the petiole possesses a dark purple-brown ovoid gland near the stem junction. Senna occidentalis (L.) also known as “Kasondi or coffee senna” is a herbaceous medicinal weed with orange-yellow to yellow flowers belonging to the family “Fabaceae (Leguminosae)” Senna occidentalis (L.). The present work was designed to investigate the presence of quercetin and gallic acid in the n-hexane and hydro-alcoholic extract of S. occidantalis through HPTLC. The result presented through chromatograms and peak tables reveals the presence of quercetin in the sample extracted with n-hexane and hydro-alcohol while gallic acid was not detected in n-hexane and hydro-alcohol extracted samples.
