Mostly leaves of Tarenna asiatica were employed in the extraction process using soxhlet apparatus and including ethanol as the solvent of choice. Initially phytochemical screening tests were done to decipher the nature of the components present in the ethanolic sample. Further separation, determination of functional groups, determination of protonated compounds and identification of phytoconstituents were done using techniques such as HPTLC, FTIR, 1H NMR and GC-MS; all these techniques were appropriately giving benignant results. The information of constituents obtained was matched with NIST library of IICT. This thorough research work contributes for beneficial usage of Tarenna asiatica in herbal medicine as well as grants scope for further study and investigation to be undertaken to explore vast knowledge regarding the plant, its constituents, their uses, its pharmacological effects and for development of synthetic pharmaceuticals.
