ABSTRACT

The present study was aimed to investigate the phytochemicals present in the leaf extract of Plectranthus amboinicus Lour. The leaf samples were dried under shade in the laboratory at ambient temperature and extracted with chloroform and diethyl ether by successive extraction method. The extracts were concentrated. Thin layer chromatography was performed and numbers of chief different components present in extracts were determined. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of Phenolic compounds, tannins, volatile oils and terpenoids in the chloroform extract and diethyl ether extract contain Phenolic compounds, flavanoids and terpenoids.

Keywords: Phytochemicals, Plectranthus, Terpenoids, Flavanoids
