The drug assessment and bioassay of conventional herbs of several herbal systems is currently acquiring more impetus overall the world. It is the high time now to evaluate methodologically the information stored in different phytotherapy of the world in terms is called as Pharmacognostic and Phytochemical depiction. So, the pharmacognosy of individual medicinal plant is very important manner for herbal based drug invention. Therefore in this study, an attempt has been has been made to estimate the ethnomedicinally important plant, pharmacognostical and phytochemical analyses which are still unexplored. In this study different pharmacognostical parameters of Ipomoea sagittifolia Burm.fil. Belonging to the Convolvulaceae family, ethnobotanically significant medicinal herbs have been explored. WHO recommended physico-chemical and photochemical screening was resolved. The Pharmacognostical, phytochemical and physico- chemical parameters were studied and presented in it. These parameters are aid to establish the authentic medicinal plant leaf of I. sagittifolia and may possibly help to transform the drug from its further classes. In the leaves extract, the identified chemical compounds are alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids and triterpenoids, reducing sugars, tannins, gums and saponins, etc. This study will be more helpful to herbalists and pharmacognostical and phytochemical for proper determination and exhibition of natural medicine (1).
