Abstract: Phytochemicals found in plants are known with many potent applications for the well-being of mankind. In the current study, the phytochemical screening of leave extracts (aqueous, ethanol and methnol) of Elaeocarpus serratus L. showed positive result with the presence of many significant phytochemicals like saponins, tannins, cardiac glycosides, flavanoids, steroids, etc. While the DPPH antioxidant analysis showed the standard Ascorbic acid with EC50 value at 25.53 µg/ml, whereas methanolic extract of E. serratus showed EC50 at 75.47 µg/ml. the HR-MS analysis revealed the presence of five novel compounds in the methanolic leave extract, viz., clotrimazole, etamiphylline, 2'-O-Methylcytidine, aspidocarpine and leupeptin. On the basis of the overall finding, it can be concluded that the plant E. serratus L. has been identified as potential source of medicinally important plants, for that further extensive analyses is required.
