Acacia farnesiana L. is an Indian plant used in Ayurvedic treatment for many diseases. A qualitative analysis by thin layer chromatography & a quantitative analysis by standard chemical protocol of secondary metabolites in the pod wall (pericarp) and seeds of the Acacia farnesiana L. has been studied. Using thin layer chromatography (TLC) different components like Alkaloids, Saponin, Flavonoids, and Terpenoides are isolated & identified. The Rf values of the developed spots in the different
