HPTLC fingerprint profile of Ardisia elliptica Thunb leave



To develop the finger print of medicinally and economically important leaves of Ardisia elliptica Thunb.Ethanol extract of the leaves were developed in the mobile phase of Ethyl acetate: Formic acid: Acetic acid : Water (100 : 11 : 11 : 27) using standard procedures and scanned under UV at 254 nm, 366nm and under visible light. Results: The HPTLC fingerprinting of the ethanol extract has shown several peaks with different Rf values. 2 µL and 4 µL of ethanol extract showed 10 spots while 6 µL and 8 µL has shown 11 spots in the above said solvent system.This finger print would be helpful in the identification and authentication of this species.
