Justicia gendarussa burm.f. has become important source of Phytol which is associated with other phenolic,terpenoids,alkaloids. Diterpenes shows anti-inflammatory activity. Phytol is a acyclic diterpene alcohol found as essential oil in aromatic plants.oil is obtained by Keshav-Naren apparatus (patent no:2343/Mum/2013/A).Phytol separated from other oil part by fractional distillation. It separated at 204-2080C.Characterization of Phytol carried out by IR,NMR,and mass spectrometry. Phytol shows potent as Anti-inflammatory activity by releasing histamine (26.92%), serotin and bradykinin (49.90%), and prostaglandin (68.03%) as compared to standard (Dicolfenac 5mg/kg).    

Keywords: Keshav-Naren apparatus, Justicia gendarussa burm.f. ,Anti-inflammatory activity etc.
