Abstract:
Terminalia pallida species was endemic to Seshachalam hills with a good source of phytochemicals. The leaf, bark and fruits of the tree were having high-quality phytochemicals in large quantities hence these parts used to cure various diseases by the local tribal people. The present study was about to estimate the total phenols, non- tannin phenols, hydrolysable tannins and condensed tannins present in the three parts of this endemic tree and their applications. The results were shown that the total phenol and hydrolysable tannins (HTs) were present in the higher quantities, whereas the non-tannin phenols and condensed tannins (CTs) were in very low quantity. As the leaf, bark and fruits were showing phytochemicals in higher concentration, they can be used in the production of high-quality drugs from individual parts as well as by combining them in proper percentages.
