Abstract : The distribution pattern of flavonoids have been studied in three species of Bauhinia Linn. viz. B. purpurea Linn., B. racemosa Lam. and B. variegata Linn. It was found that Myricetin and Isorhmnetin were specific to B. racemosa and B. purpurea respectively while B. variegata did not exhibit the presence of any specific compound.
