Pharmacognostical parameters for the leaves of Sapindus trifoliatus Vahl. were studied with the aim of drawing the pharmacopoeial standards for this species. Macroscopical and microscopical characters, physio-chemical constants, extractive values with different solvents, fluorescence analysis of dry powder, its reaction after treatment with chemical reagents under visible light and UV light at 254 nm and 366 nm. Preliminary phytochemical studies on the leaves of Sapindus trifoliatus were performed. The determination of these characters will aid future investigators in their pharmacological analyses of this species.
