Abstract:  A simple, rapid, and selective HPTLC method has been established for separation and determination of curcumin, extracted from rhizomes of different Curcuma species, which are sold in herbal drug markets of India by the name of Amraharidra. Chromatography was performed on silica gel 60F254 plates with chloroform: ethanol: acetic acid, 95: 4: 5 (v/v), as mobile phase. Detection and quantification were performed densitometrically at max = 260 nm with curcumin as external standard. This method was also found suitable for rapid screening of plant materials for chemotaxonomic.
