Palms are considered as familiar strangers. Various studies reported that the genus Phoenix was mostly cultivated, traditionally used plants as medicine and also as an ornamental plant. In this present study, preliminary phytochemical analysis, study of microscopical structures and the chemical constituents of Phoenix pusilla root was evaluated. Transverse Section of Phoenix pusilla root was studied by sectioning the two different thickness roots and also powder microscopy was carried out. Non-polar, volatile constituents of crude ethanolic extract of root was analyzed by GC-MS. Primary and secondary metabolites quantification revealed that the carbohydrate content and total phenolics concentration were higher than the other metabolites respectively. Physico chemical analysis showed the moisture content was 3.78 ± 0.54, ash content value was 2.46 ±0.95 and crude fiber content was higher than protein, fat content. Microscopy study showed the presence of unique tracheids. Metabolite profiling revealed the presence 96 different constituents and more than 10 found to have biological importance. Pharmacognostic study is an important step of research which reveals about shelf-life of drug, adulterations etc

Key words: GC-MS, Phoenix pusilla root, Phytochemical analysis,microscopic study, shelf-life
