Assam has an abundance of medicinal plants. Cynodon dactylon is used by the people of Assam in the treatment of dysentery, diarrhea, piles, fever, allergy, etc. For thin layer chromatographic study, ethanolic and dichloromethanic leaf extract of Cynodon dactylon was taken. Glass plates and precoated silica gel sheets were used for thin layer chromatographic investigation. Twenty different solvent systems and four visualizing reagents, viz, Iodine, H2SO4, NH3 solution, KOH solution in methanol were used. Thin layer chromatography of ethanolic and dichloromethanic leaf extract of Cynodon dactylon are different both on glass plates and precoated silica gel sheets.
