The blooming shrub Chrozophora rottleri, also referred to as "Indian chalk plant," is indigenous to India and other countries in South Asia. The ability of this plant to create a white, chalk-like substance on its leaves, stems, and fruits is just one example of its unusual traits. The powdery coating has long been employed in a variety of cultural rituals and may have medical and cosmetic uses as well. February through August are prime months for development to begin. It first arises in February, blooms in June and July, and then entirely vanishes in late August. The plant has a staggering array of chemical components as well as numerous pharmacological characteristics. The plant contains artificial chemical compounds such as alkaloids, sugar, glycosides, tannins, steroids, flavonoids, saponins, quercetin 3-o-rutinoside, acacetin 7-orutinoside, and apigenin 7-o-b-d-[6-(3,4- dihydroxybenzoyl)] -glucopyranoside. Xanthone glycosides and chromone glycoside were abundant in the leaf and basic parts of C. rottleri. The whole plant contains tannins, and oil extracted from the seeds was very lineolate-rich. Powdered leaves and roots are administered for the treatment of colds, coughs, and wound healing. Chrozophora rottleri is a plant that has antibacterial, antioxidant, antinecrotic, and antihelmintic characteristics.The study of the euphorbiaceae family, botanical description, taxonomical classification, phytochemical constituents, medicinal uses, pharmacological and therapeutic activity aspects of Chrozophora rottleri are covered in this abstract, which also highlights the plant's importance in regional customs and potential value for further investigation
