Abstract: The indigenous plant of Manilkara hexandra belongs to Sapotaceae family. It is also called in tamil “Kanuppalai”. The sacred plant is widely observed in the religious temple of South India because of it consists of latex. The investigation is carried on phytochemical screening analysis, quantitative and yield percentage of leaf, stem, and bark of Manilkara hexandra. The dried powder was screened with petroleum ether, hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetae, ethanol, methanol and double distilled water by cold extraction method. The secondary metabolites were estimated with standard procedures. The yield percentage was calculated. The qualitative report shows the presence of phytochemicals. The high quantity of alkaloids (0.153.8±45.8 mg/g), saponins (211±70.40 mg/g) were detected in stem, flavonoids (144±3.16 mg/g) in leaf, terpenoids (34.0±4.1 mg/g) in bark. The phenol (9.49±0.0002mg/g) and the tannin (79.03±0.019 mg/g) present in the bark was examined by using standard gallic acid and tannic acid respectively. The yield reveals that the amount of stem (27.64 g in %) is rich in ethanol. From the consecutive results, concluded that the rich herbal compounds are utilized for future research on innovative drug delivery system.
