A qualitative study to evaluate the phytochemical constituents in aqueous and methanol leaf extracts of Elytraria acaulis was done by following standard qualitative phytochemical screening methods. The prelimininary phytochemical analysis of Elytraria acaulis leaves showed the presence of carbohydrates, protein, alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, terpenoids, phenols, flavanoids, steroids and saponins in both the extracts compared to aqueous extract where saponins, steroids, alkaloids and carbohydrates were absent. The leaves of Elytraria acaulis might ensure phyto constituents source with stable, biologically active components that can establish a scientific base for synthesis modern medicine in future.
