Phytochemicals are secondary metabolites produced by all plants in which some have medicinal use. The present study involves seven different medicinal plants ie. Curculigoorchioides, Nelumbonucifera, Psoraleacorylifolia, Punicagranatum, Sitopaladichurna, Symplocosracemosa, Syzygiumcumini. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of alkaloids, saponins, tannins, flavonoids, terpenoids, steroids, phenols in varying concentrations. The main objective of the work was to check the presence of the phytochemical constituents and their amount in all the selected medicinal plants. All the selected medicinal plants were found to contain steroids, alkaloids, carbohydrates and flavanoids. Moreover, triterpenoids are also present in Curculigoorchioides. On the other hand, alkaloids were absent in all plants except Punicagranatum and saponins were absent in all plants except Symplocosracemosa. These phytochemicals are responsible for the medicinal properties of these plants.
