Introduction: Eucalyptus globulus Labill synonym blue gum tree (Family: Myrtaceae) is an evergreen tree, one of the most widely cultivated trees native to Australia, South Africa, India and Southern Europe. The bark was used against toothaches and gum aches.The leaves were used against headaches which occured on one side of the head. Eucalyptus globulus Labill synonym blue gum tree (Family: Myrtaceae) possess antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antimalarial and Antioxidant properties. Methods: The present study will assist in standardization parameters like morphological characters, microscopic evaluation, physicochemical evaluations (loss on drying, ash values, extractive values), preliminary phytochemical screening and TLC chromatographic profile of the extract were carried out and the quantitative parameters were reported. Results: Chief macroscopic and microscopic characters include lamina with secretory cavity. Lower palisade cells, Lateral vein, secretory cavity, Spongy mesophyll, Upper palisade, stomata and with terminal clusters of sclereids. Conclusion: These studies provide referential information for correct identification and standardization of this plant material.

Keywords: Eucalyptus globulus, standardization, microscopic evaluation, TLC.
