Author(s): T.K Maity, S.C Dinda

From the 90% methanolic extract of the dried leaves of Cassia tora Linn., aloe-emodin, 1,8- dihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethy1)-anthraquinone has been isolated and identified. The purgative activity of the methonalic extract as well as that of isolated aloe-ernodin from C. tora leaves was evaluated in Wistar rats. The extract as well as isolated material showed significant purgativeactivity in Wistar rats.
