Wrightia tinctoria have been studies for their chemical constituents. The powder of fruit of W. tinctoria was subjected to hot extraction with methanol, petroleum ether and ethyl acetate and subjected to chromatography. The flavonoids in form of Rutin and Catechol were isolated from fruit extract of W. tinctoria. The results revealed that, methanol fruit extracts of W. tinctoria contains maximum amount of flavonoids as 90 mg/g of Rutin equivalent and the phenolic content as 3.0 mg/g of Catechol equivalents. While, fruit extract of ethanol and petroleum ether has been found minimum, whereas, fruit extract of W. tinctoria was found highest presence of catechol equivalents.
