The present study was to investigate various medicinal value phytochemicals in leaf and stem portion of Ipomoea pes-caprae were determined by various physic chemical characteristics like moisture content, total ash content acid insoluble ash content, water insoluble ash content and solvent extractive values. The qualitative phytochemical screening and quantitative analysis by GC-MSD with nonpolar solvent n-hexane, suggested the presence of alkaloid, sugar, glycoside, saponins, steroids, terpenoids and flavonoids. The study provides evidence that the leaf and stem has potential source of antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and cytotoxic agents.
