      Yen Phan, Anh Nguyen
Abstract: Medicinal plants contain bioactive compounds which are used for treatment of various human diseases.Phytochemicals have two categories i.e., primary and secondary constituents.Secondary metabolites are responsible for medicinal activity of plants. The phytochemical analysis of total extracts in water, ethanol, methanol, chloroform, hexane and ether extracts of Scopariadulcis L.were investigated. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of flavonoids, steroids, quinone, starch, cellulose, terpenoids, phenols, carbohydrates, fixed oil and fat, and saponins in varying solvents. This research seeks to investigate the presence phytochemical constituents as the possible agent responsible for the medicinal activities of the plant ScopariadulcisL.. This plant belongs to family Scrophulariaceae. The present study provides evidence that different solvents can extract different phytochemical constituents of Scopariadulcis L. The diversity of phytochemicals found suggests that Scopariadulcis L. could serve as a natural source of traditional medicine for treatment of various diseases.
