Plants are utilized as therapeutic agents in organized form like Ayurveda and unorganized form used by tribal people. In this project Teak wood has been chosen in powder form and its different compounds like Alkaloid, Flavonoid and antioxidants have been analyzed using Thin Layer Chromatography technique. The components were separated with the use of different solvents such as benzene, petroleum ether and chloroform along with Thin Layer Chromatography technique and nitric oxide radical scavenging properties were revealed to a satisfactory level in Teak wood. This study may be extended on clinical trial basis for its therapeutic actions with animals and subsequently be extended to selective diseased human populations provided the experimental animal studies yields satisfactory results.
