Abstract: Qualitative analysis of Protein, Resin, Tannin, Glycosides, Cardiac glycosides, Saponin, Terpenoids, Phenol, Flavonoid, Alkaloids and Acidic compounds from two mangrove species of S. monoica and S. portulocastrum was carried out. The distribution of aforementioned phytoconstituents were examined and compared. Both of the mangrove species shows the presence of Protein, Resin, Tannin, Glycosides, Cardiac glycosides, Terpenoids, Phenol, Flavonoid and Acidic compounds. Alkaloids and Saponin are absent in both of the species. The significance of the phytochemical constituents with the respect to the role of these plants in traditional medicine treatment is discussed.
