Phytochemicals are present in different parts of plants which are utilized as important components of living organism. In the present study the leaves of the plants were separated and shade dried at room temperature till constant weight was obtained and were ground to powder manually. After the Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis leaf powder prepared from water and water with 1% formic acid. The starch, glucose, protein and flavonoids are analysis in fresh leaves of Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis. Qualitative studies of secondary metabolites like alkaloids, steroids, carbohydrates, phenolic compound, gum, resin, saponins and glycosides were studied in the leaf extract of water and water with 1% formic acid. Result of this study soluble protein, starch, glucose and flavonoids will be present in Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis leaf powder. Likewise the screening of phytochemical components such as alkaloids, steroids, carbohydrates, phenolic compound, saponins and glycosides are present in Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis extracts of water and water with 1% formic acid but gum and resin are absence of Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis plant leaf extract of water with 1% formic acid. Finally, it can be concluded that Nyctanthus arbor tris-tis is a viable phytochemical source and the further research can be conducted on this plant to explore its hidden potential.
