ABSTRACT
In the recent years, there has been a gradual revival of interest in the use and research on medicinal plants throughout the world because herbal drugs are reported to be safe and do not produce side effects, which are generally associated with synthetic drugs and antibiotics. The major limitation with present herbal drugs is the lack of standardization. Standardization of herbal drugs is needed to overcome the problems of adulteration and is most developing field of research now. The present study aimed to compare the quality of different samples of Cinnamomum zeylanicum. The different samples were purchased from local market of different places Hisar (Haryana), Sirsa (Haryana) and Bhatinda (Punjab) of India.The quality of different samples were evaluated on the basis of various parameters viz organoleptic properties, foreign matter, total ash value, acid insoluble ash value, alcohol soluble extractive value, water soluble extractive value, loss on drying, volatile oil content, TLC profile of isolated oil. The result indicates that sample A was found to be of standard quality as per official compendia while other two samples can be considered as adulterated.
