Pharmacognostical parameters for the leaves of Argyreia nervosa (Burm. f.) Bojer were studied with the aim of drawing the pharmacopoeial standards for this species. Macroscopical and microscopical characters, physio-chemical constants, quantitative microscopy parameters, 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 phyto chemical screening on the leaves of Argyreia nervosa (Burm. f.) Bojer were studied. The determination of these characters will help future researchers in their Phytochemical as well as Pharmacological analyses of this species.
