Scientific Name:
Collection  : The drug is collected when flowering in fine days in summer and dried in the sun in time.

Description  : Capitulum crumpled to masses. Flowers slender and curved, 0.7-1cm long, pale yellowish-brown, short pedicelled, calyx tubular, 5 tooth at the apex. Corolla tube about 2 times in length of calyx tube, 5 lobed at the apex, lobes lanceolate, stamens numerous, filaments separated at the upper part, longexerted. Odour slightly aromatic, taste weak.

Identification  : 1.Powder: greyish yellow. Nongrandular, hairs unicellular, slightly curved, 81-447µm long, 8-16µm in diameter, walls thickened and warty, sometimes showing 1-2 thin septa. The prisms of the calcium oxalate frequently occuring in the parenchymatous cells, bipyramidical, subsquare, rectangular or rhomboid, 3-31µm in diameter. Crystal cells grouped or several arranged in longitudinal rows. Compound pollen grains oblate, 16 polysomic, 18-146µm in diameter, the central 8 monosomic arranged cruciform and surrounded by the other 8 monosomic. Individual monosomic subsquare or long spherical, exine almost smooth. The epidermal cells of fillaments long striped or rectangular in surface view; inticlinal walls straight with longitudinally sinous cuticle striations.2.To 1g of the powder add 10ml of ether, stand for 1 hour, filter evaporate the filtrate to dryness, dissolve the residue in 0.5ml of ethyl acetate as the test solution. Prepare a solution of Flos Albiziae reference drug in the same manner as the test solution. Carry out the method for thin layer chromatography (Appendix Vl B) using silica gel G as the coating substance in a mixture of n-hexane-ethyl acetate (8.5:1.5) as the mobile phase. Apply separately 6 µl of each of the above two solutions in the plate. After developing and removal of the plate, dry it in the air, spray with5% solution of vanillin in sulfuric acid, dry with hot air until the colour of the spots appear clearly. The spot in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution corresponds in the colour and position to the spots in the chromatogram obtained with the reference drug solution.

Processing  :

Action  : To ease the mind and induce traquilization.

Indication  : anxiety, depression, insomnia

Precautions  :

Dosage  : 4.5 to 9 g.

Storage  : Preserve in a ventilated and dry place.
