This dissertation aimed at to investigate and evaluate the possible phytochemical and biological profiles like, phytochemical screening, brine shrimp lethality bioassay and hypoglycemic activity of the medicinal plant Albizia richardiana (Fam. Fabaceae, subfam. Mimosoideae). Plants of the Albizia species are employed as traditional medicine for the treatment of anthelmentic, rheumatism, cough, diarrhea, stomach ache, wounds, etc. These plants are also recognized therapeutically for treating irritability, insomnia, wounds, as antidysentric, antiseptic, antitubercular etc. In present Phytochemical study, this plant is a great source of different group of bioactive chemical substances like- carbohydrates, saponins, glucosides, glycosides and alkaloids. Apart from this, they may show cytotoxicity as well as hyperglycemic activity. Based on the present study, we can suggest Albizia richardiana may be given the recognition as a medicinal plant.
