Since ancient ages medicinal herbs have gained attention because of its immense potential for treating various disease with less side effects. The present study was carried out to highlight phytochemical and pharmacological aspects of Ormocarpum sennoides DC. Ormocarpum sennoides, a shrub used in traditional system of Indian medicine has been reported to possess bone fracture healing, and strengthening bone. Phytochemical screening of Ormocarpum sennoides DC was analyzed using various solvent such as ethanol, methanol, aqueous leaf extract were tested for presence of bio-active compounds such as alkaloids, glycosides, steroids, phenols, tannis. Further these compounds needs to be isolated to confirm the activities of the individual compound. The unidentified anabolic steroid may act on estrogenic receptors of the bone, used in fracture healing, the high levels of flavonoids content may be responsible for antioxidant potential of Ormocarpum sennoides. The HPLC fingerprinting and IR, UV spectroscopy analysis was carried out to help in the identification and authentication of this species and provide referential information for standardization of the plant. The present study was carried out to identify the various phyto constituents present in the different extracts of Ormocarpum sennoides DC.
