The Siddha system of medicine is one among parts of the AYUSH system. The Siddha medicine is used to treat various diseases, especially Diabetes Mellitus. In siddha system medicines were prepared from Herbals, Minerals, salts and Metals as well as the marine and animals products also used in the system. The herbomineraldrug Aavaraipanchagachoornam is coarse powder in nature which is widely used in Siddha medicine for Diabetes Mellitus. The objective of the present study to explore the elemental characterization and assessment of functional groups inherbo mineral drug Aavaraipanchagachoornam. The ingredients used in the trial drug are Cassiaauriculata, Terminalisarjuna, Asparagus racemosus, Syzgiumcumini, Stereospermumsuaveolens, Salacia reticulata, Cosciniumfenestratum, Hyoscyamusniger and Asbestos. The trial drug is prepared as per siddha literature kannuswaamypillaipatharthagunavilakampg no. 64.The drug was subjected into Characterization through FTIR analysis. The Functional Group studied through FTIR study. It can be correlated in WHO recommended parameters for confirmed standardizations in above drug. FTIR Characterization of trial drug "Aavaraipanchagachoornam" shows the presence of some functional group such as carboxylic acid, alkenes, alkanes, Nitrocompound, Aromatic compounds, Flurocompounds and Halo compounds. This study forms the base for the pharmaceutical analysis of "Aavaraipanchagachoornam? which ensures the efficacy and therapeutic effect of the drug.
