Abstract: Madhuca longifolia (Koen.) Macbr. var. latifolia (Roxb.) A. Cheval. of Sapotaceae family is commonly known as Mahuwa. The stem bark is used by the aboriginals of Maharashtra in curing itch, bleeding gums, cyst, ulcers, madhumeha, etc. Although the bark is in use, deliberate attempt to study them has lacked. Pharmacognosy is the first step in deciding the status of a plant organ as a crude medicine; hence the current study was done. The present study comprises macroscopy, microscopy, histochemistry, physicochemical parameters, fluorescence analysis and preliminary phytochemistry. TLC of saponin present in the drug is carried out to establish the biomarker compound. These studies will help in establishing the pharmacopoeial standards for the said drug.
