Abstract– Medicinal plants have been used as traditional treatment for numerous human diseases since thousands of years. Medicinal properties of plants are due to the active chemical constituents present in different parts of plants. The present investigation was carried out to study one of the physicochemical parameters of some ethnomedicinal plants. Standardization of the plants were done with the help of extractive values of leaves. Water-soluble extractive value is higher in Adhatoda vasica and Vitex negundo which is 23.18 ± 1.83, 8.54 ± 2.0 respectively. In Centella asiatica methanol-soluble extractive value 17.70 ± 0.70 is higher. The result of the present study may be used for the identification and standardization of the plant material and phytochemical screening for determination of active constituents.

Key words: Ethnomedicinal, physicochemical, extractive values.
