  • Abstract

    Propanolic extract of leaves of three plants namely mint (Mentha piperita), guava (Psidium guajava), drum stick (Moringa oleifera) were prepared separately. Comparison for the presence of some important phytochemicals like, terpenpoids, reducing sugars, tannins, cabonyl, flavonoids, phlobatanins, steroids etc. were studied. It was found that saponins, terpenoids and reducing sugar was present in all the three plant extracts. Carbonyl and flavonoids were present in guava leaves. Moringa leaves exhibited the presence of carbonyl, flavonoids, phlobatanin and steroids. In the mint leaves tannins, carbonyls, flavonoids, phlobatanin and steroids were conspicuous by their absence.
