S. Selvakumar* and J. Monica.

Medicinal plants besides therapeutic agents are also a big source of information for a wide variety of chemical constituents which could be developed as drugs with precise selectivity. These are the reservoirs of potentially useful chemical compounds which could serve as newer leads and clues for modern drug design . The medicinal plants are useful for healing as well as for curing of human diseases because of the presence of phytochemical constituents. Phytochemicals are naturally occurring in the medicinal plants, leaves, vegetables and roots that have defense mechanism and protect from various diseases. Phytochemicals are primary and secondary compounds. Medicinal plants are used for discovering and screening of the phytochemical constituents which are very helpful for the manufacturing of new drugs. The previous phytochemical analysis and present studied show nearly the similar results due to the presence of the phytochemical constituents. The phytochemical analysis of the medicinal plants are also important and have commercial interest in both research institutes and pharmaceuticals companies for the manufacturing of the new drugs for treatment of various diseases. Hence, the present study aims to explore the phytochemical profile of the Indian medicinal plant Ctenolepsis cerasiformis.Our results indicate that the presence of various Phytochemicals in the chloroform extract of Ctenolepsis cerasiformis. Keywords: Ctenolepsis cerasiformis, Phytochemicals, Defense mechanisms, Pharmaceuticals, Therapeutics.
