The present study was undertaken to assess the phytochemical constituents present in the leaf extract of some members of the family Annonaceae. Leaf extracts were prepared from the organic solvents extracts and phytochemical screening was performed using the standard methodsgiven by Harborne. Phytochemical screening of the plants showed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, coumarins, flavonoids, glycosides, phenolic compounds, phytosterols, proteins, quinones, saponins, steroids and terpenoids. The constituents reported from the present study gives further idea for detailed studies on clinical and therapeutic aspects.
