The Vatha Siletpana Sura Kudineeris a herbal drug of Siddha formulation used for the treatment of vathakaphasuram which has symptoms like cough, fever, breathing difficulty, aches and pains, sore throat, running nose, diarrhoea, nausea, loss of smell an d taste, headache and chills. The objective of the present study is to characterize and assess the functional groups in herbal drug ?Vatha Siletpana Sura Kudineer?. The ingredients were collected & purified and the drug was prepared as per Siddha literature ?Pararajasekaram part III?. Here, the drug was subjected into characterization through FT ? IR analysis. FT ? IR characterization applied in the mid infrared region 4000 cm-1 to 400 cm-1 revealed the presence of functional groups like O-H stretch, O=C=O stretch, O-N-O stretch, C-N stretch, C-O stretch, C=C bend, C-Clstretch, C-Br stretch, C-I stretch respectively. This peak indicates the presence of some organic functional groups such as carboxylic acid, nitro compounds, amine, tertiary alcohol, alkenes, alkyl & aryl halideswhich ensure the efficacy and therapeutic effect of the drug. These characterized functional groups are analysed through research papers from journals which provides the information that they have anti inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant, anti pyretic, bronchodialator, anti nociceptive, anti tussive activities. These activities resembles the indications mentioned in Siddha text book for VathaSiletpanaSuraKudineer.
