Abstract
Man has been using plant materials for treatment of his ailments since time immemorial. These herbal drugs have stood the test of time for their safety, efficacy, cultural acceptability and lesser side effects. About 75-80% of the world population, mainly in the developing countries still use plant based medicines for primary health care. During the last decade there has been a major increase in the use of medicinal plants all over the world particular in U.S.A. and European countries. Most of the traditional drugs used in various countries have not been evaluated scientifically and therefore documentation on their rational use is not available. During the 18 th century, the active principles of a number of plant drugs were isolated and it was realized that the clinical effects of drugs such as opium, cinchona and ipecac could be attributed to the chemical compounds, morphine, quinine and emetine, respectively; hence it became possible to administer these in standardized dosage forms. With the commercialization of herbal medicines it has become necessary to undertake systematic studies on their efficacy levels along with parameters to assess their quality. Chemical Standardization is one of the measures designed to ensure consistency in the quality and quantity of the active principle in the herbal extract/formulations. There is a strong need to adopt modern analytical methods for quality control of plant materials and herbal remedies. Simple test like foreign matter, macroscopic and microscopic studies, ash content, extractive values in different solvents, bitterness value etc can reveal lot of valuable information regarding the Quality assurance of the dosage form. By application of fingerprinting techniques using analytical methods like TLC, CC, HPLC, HPTLC, GLC; GC-MS , LC-Ms etc. a high level of quality control can be achieved. These tests involve use of sophisticated equipment and need of availability of pure chemical components present in particular herbal extract/formulation.
