Cassia Linn. (Family  Caesalpiniaceae) is a large tropical genus with about 600 species of herbs, shrubs and trees. Most of the plants of the genus are wellknown in Indian system of medicine for their cathartic, purgative and antibiotic properties. Many compounds of structural significance and medicinal importance have been reported from different species of this genus. Species of Cassia are rich source of anthraquinones which are wellknown as natural dyes, and are gaining importance in recent… Expand
