The aim of this investigation to assess the phytochemical screening of the Ethanolic and Methanolic leaf extract of locally available Meizotropis pellita (Patwa Plant).Different tests are performed to find the phytochemicals that are present so as to subject the plant for further medicinal uses .These chemical constituents are mainly responsible for various biological activities. From the phytochemical studies conducted it was found that there is the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, proteins in the plant sample. These chemical constituents are mainly responsible for various biological activities. The plant sample collected from the forest of the Institute of Biotechnology (Patwadangar), Nainital . After the collection of leaves, they were dried and crushed into a powdered form. Finally an extract was prepared using different solvents. After this the phytochemical analysis was performed to find out the above mentioned chemical constituents found in Meizotropis pellita from patwadangar.
