Abstract: Ficus dalhousiae Miq of Moraceae family is widely used in the traditional and Unani medicine for the liver and skin diseases. F. dalhousiae being very rare medicinal plant found scarcely distributed in India. In present study, the plant parts were shade dried and phytochemicals are extracted with solvents of different polarity like hexane, chloroform, acetone, methanol, water. These extracts showed great variation in terms of phytochemical composition. Of all the extracts, methanol was found to have more phyto constituents, whereas hexane and chloroform showed fewer compounds than the other extracts. Acetone and water extract showed moderate range of extract solubility which was in accordance with previously published reports. F. dalhousiae has wide range of chemical constituents and these can be useful for drug discovery and development of various new formulations. Further study of these compounds, their separation and purification will provide way for future research.
