Many of the species of Albizia are used traditionally for various diseases like astringent, treating piles, diarrhoea, gonorrhoea, leprosy, leucoderma, erysipelas and abscesses. In traditional medicine, Albizia amara is used to heal stomach ailments and also used as tonic, anti dandruff. The flowers have been applied to boils, eruptions, swellings, also regarded as an emetic and as a remedy for coughs and malaria. The plant under study has been used since ages by folk because of its rich medicinal values. All the parts of the plant have an ethno medicinal importance. In present paper; the fingerprint of high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) was developed to identify species in detail. The unique properties of the HPTLC fingerprints were analyzed. The pattern of the HPTLC images of the leaves of Albizia spp. and the different ratios of the chemical distribution can directly discern the species.

Key words: Albizia amara; High performance thin layer chromatography; Budmunchiamines; Fingerprint.
