The primary aim of the study is to detect the flavonoids, phenolic acids and xanthones in three commercial herbal raw materials namely Aegle marmelos, Citrus aurantifolia and Murraya koenigii obtained from Rutaceae family used in daily domestic needs to confirm the presence of mentioned common secondary metabolites in herbal raw materials. Results of the study clearly revealed that these raw materials from rutaceae family contains flavonoids, phenolic acids and xanthones. The developed HPTLC method can be employed for the routine investigations of flavonoids, phenolic acids and xanthones in herbal raw materials. Aegle marmelos, Citrus aurantifolia and Murraya koenigii was ascertain the presence of Rutin and shows the 0.072%,0.005%0.002% respectively. Ellagic acid was originate to be not more than 0.004% each of Aegle marmelos and Citrus aurantifolia. Quercetin was found to 0.034% .062% 0.021% respectively in all test three extracts. Vitexin was found to be 0.019% in Citrus aurantifolia. Murraya koenigii revels presence of 0.002%, 0.001% of mangiferin and catechin respectively.
