In the present study, we have carried out pharmacognostic evaluation of the bark of Careya arborea Roxb. (Lecythidaceae). Initially, organoleptic evaluation was carried out followed by detail microscopical evaluation including the study of transverse section (T.S) and microscopic characteristics of powdered bark of C. arborea (Lecythidaceae). Under physical evaluation; total ash, sulphated ash, water soluble ash and acid insoluble ash were determined. Water soluble and ethanol soluble extractive values were also calculated. Loss on drying was carried out for determination of moisture content. Various chemical tests were carried out for qualitative determination of nature of phytoconstituents in the bark of C. arborea Roxb. (Lecythidaceae).
Key words: Careya arborea, lecythidaceae, microscopical characteristics, T.S., physical evaluation.
