Abstract:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the phytochemical analysis for fifteen fruits collected from the Boda and Kolli hills. The phytochemicals estimation is screened by using three different solvent such as ethanol, chloroform and aqueous. The wild and edible fruits such as Coccinia indica, Carissa carandas, Ficus benghalensis, Ficus religiosa, Hugnoia mystax, Limonia acidissima, Morinda pubescens, Murraya koenigii, Pithecellobium dulce, Syzygium cumini, Tarenna asiatica, Zizyphus mauritiana and Zizyphus oenoplia. The phytochemicals like alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, phenols and saponins were estimated. The results show the presence of phytochemical constituent was high in ethanol extract. The concentration was varied for the solvent extraction. Hence, these findings confirm that the selected edible fruit have a potential source for the formulation of new therapeutic drug.
