Emasushan M and John Britto S
Putranjiva roxburghii Wall. (Putranjivaceae). is a valuable but underutilised medicinal tree. The present study investigates its qualitative analysis of phytochemical constituents and antifungal activity of from seeds and pericarp (Fruit wall). Different extracts of samples were screened for preliminary phytochemical profile. The methanolic extracts were analysed to estimate antifungal activity against five fungal strains. Qualitative analysis showed the presence of Alkaloids, Carbohydrates, Glycosides, Flavonoids, Phenols, Tannins, Fixed oils, Coumarins, Saponins, Sterols and Terpenoids. Antifungal result showed higher value for Trychorphyton rubrum for both the samples.
