Abstract: To study the phytochemicals present in Hybanthus enneaspermus collected from the K.Puliyankulam, Virudhunagar District, Tamil Nadu, India. The present study reveals that the phytochemical analysis of nine different chemical compounds (Alkaloids Terpenoids, Saponins, Flavonoids, Tannin, Glycosides, Phenols, Steroids and Reducing sugars) were tested in three different extracts Ethanol, Acetone and Water respectively. Alkaloids, terpenoid, tannin, flavonoids, glycosides, Steroids and phenolics were present in Ethanolic extract; Alkaloids, terpenoid, tannin and glycosides were found in Acetone extract; terpenoid, tannin, flavonoids, glycosides and phenolics were present in aqueous extract. All the three extracts have shown the negative result of saponin and reducing sugar. In acetone extract have shown additionally steroids and phenols were absent; alkaloids absent in aqueous extract. Finally the solvency of H. enneaspermus in ethanol is high when compare with two other solvents.
