Abstract: Plants have infinite ability to synthesize arrays of chemical compound newlineconstituting aliphatic as well as aromatic compounds. Most of the aromatic newlinecompounds belong to the phenolics or their oxygen substituted derivatives. newlineThese substances provide plant a defense mechanism against newlinemicroorganisms, insects and herbivores. These compounds includes newlineterpenoids imparting odour to the plants quinones and tannins forms the newlinebasis of plant pigments. Many compounds provides plant flavor like the newlineterpenoid capsaicin from chilli peppers. Some of the herbs and spices used newlineby humans to season food yield useful medicinal compounds. newlineThe use of traditional medicine is very common in South Eastern newlineAsian countries like China, India, Japan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand. newlineIn India herbal medicines make use of a large number of plants found newlinelocally. Nowadays, the demand for herbal medicinal preparations is more newlinethan mainstream pharmaceutical products. newlineMarathwada possesses a very rich flora with a total of 1645 species newlinebelonging to 746 genera of 155 families. Few plants from Marathwada have newlinebeen studied for pharmaceutical properties. The majority of work pertains to newlinethe taxonomy and physiology of plants found in this region. Few recent newlinereports describe ethnomedicinal properties and uses of a wide number of newlineplants. The work on the plants in this region related with antimicrobial and newlinephytochemistry is very less. newlineThe use of traditional medicine is a popular practice in Marathwada newlineespecially in Nanded among rural folk due to several reasons, such as newlineavailability of natural products, cultural beliefs, preference of natural newlineproducts to synthetically derived drugs and the high cost of modern drugs. newlinevii newlineTraditional healers play key roles in administering treatment for all sorts of newlineailments using plants. newlineThe aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of selected newlinemedicinal plants that are used in traditional medicine to treat common newlineailments for their pharmacological and phytochemical properties. newline
