Abstract: Preliminary phytochemical screening of the methanolic extract Helicanthes elastica belongs to Loranthaceae growing in two hosts Nerium indicum and Hevea brasiliensis revealed the occurrence of various constituents. The important constituents identified in the parasite were glycosides, saponins, tannins and phenols in both hosts. Qualitative chemical tests conducted in the present study were to create a standardized parameters that have an immense value for higher phytochemical quantification of the major compounds present in the plant. It also helped to find out the difference in the qualitative aspects in the parasite with respect to hosts.
