Objective: To develop a simple, precise and quantitative High Performance Thin Layer Chromatographic (HPTLC) method for the determination of cinnamaldehyde in Cinnnamomum zeylanicum bark powder. Materials and Method: Cinnamaldehyde content of bark powder of Cinnnamomum zeylanicum, were determined using mobile phase, Toluene: Ethyl acetate: Formic acid, 19:1:0.1 (v/v). Instrument with Camag Linomat V and Camag TLC Scanner 3 was used. Results: HPTLC method was developed for the determination of cinnamaldehyde by scanning the plates at 295nm. Conclusion: Proposed HPTLC method was simple, accurate, precise, economic and can be utilized for the routine analysis and quantitative determination of cinnamaldehyde from C. zeylanicum.
