Abstract

This paper reports the presence of alpha radioactivity in a few medicinal plants, which form the main components of some hebal drugs. Assessment of effective dose has also. been done. The total alpha radio activity in medicinal plants has been found within 47 - 245 Bq/Kg and the effective dose found in the range 2.8 - 4.7 μSv. This data is required for environmental monitoring.
