The present study was conducted to determine the concentration of heavy metals in some selected medicinal plants taken from Mahadeo dara, District Beed, India. Essential heavy metals such as Fe, Cu, Ni and Cr were investigated in leaves of Feronia limonia, Bauhinia racemosa, Pongamia pinnata, Dalbeagia sissoo, Terminalia arjuna, Ailanthus excelsa, Morinda tinctoria, Moringa oleifera, Cordia dichotoma by using inductive coupling plasma spectroscopy. Plants showed different metal concentration in the range of: 721.5-14481.4 ppm for Fe, 26.5-300 ppm for Cu, 6.7-638.9 ppm for Ni, 0.6-10 ppm for Co. High contents of Fe and Cu were found in all nine plants. Other heavy metals were present in low quantity. The purpose of this study was to identify each type of metal associated with a given plants and also to highlight the heavy metals present in these plants.
