A book entitled “Chemical Profiles of Ayurvedic Medicines” Volume-1 (by Dr. K K Bhutani) and team has been published by the Department of Natural Products, NIPER, which showcases the chemical profiles of approx. 300 plants (collected from different localities of India especially North East India) and 35 formulations which has been subjected to sophisticated analytical procedures like HPTLC, HPLC and LCMS to constitute a fingerprint library. Apart from identification of single crude drug, Department of Natural Products is actively engaged in the identification and finger printing of marker components from the botanicals being employed and used traditionally for therapeutic use in many parts of the country. Fingerprinting in essence is chemoprofiling which means establishing a characteristic chemical pattern for the plant material, which can be utilized for the identification of plant material and for the measurement of secondary metabolites qualitatively and quantitatively. This book has been presented in three sections: first and second sections are the compilation of HPTLC and HPLC chemoprofiles and the third section depicts LC-MS chemoprofiles with spectra. The publication would serve as a ready reference for researchers, academicians, policy makers and herbal drug industry. The book was released during the inaugural ceremony of 2nd Biennial International Conference on “New developments in Drug Discovery from Natural Products and Traditional Medicines” (DDNPTM) organized by the Department of Natural Products, NIPER from 20th to 24th November, 2010.
