About This Special Issue
Plant is the sources of natural remedies. Every plant contains several potential phytochemicals which are demonstrating potential pharmacological activity. New compounds isolated from several plants. Further investigation may lead to isolation, identification and purification of these compounds as new drug.

Several protocols may develop to evaluate these pharmacological activities. This special issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research in the area of Pharmacological and Phytochemicals that can fulfill the anytime-anywhere access dream. Original research papers are solicited in any aspect of innovative Pharmacological and Phytochemicals.

Aims and Scope:

1. Investigation of pharmacological activity
2. Establish effective methodology
3. Primary step to isolate lead compounds
