Aim: Calotropis procera is a perennial shrub belonging to the family Asclepiadaceae. The aim and objective of the study is to screen the Ethanolic, Methanolic and chloroform extract of leaves for their phytochemical constituents and the comparison of the phytochemical components. Further evaluation of fractions of methanolic extracts of C. procera leaf. Methods: The various extracts viz. Ethanolic, Methanolic and chloroform of leaves of Calotropis procera screened for the various secondary

Results: The Methanolic and chloroform extract of Calotropis procera shows the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, saponins, flavonoids and proteins. While the Ethanolic extract of C. procera shows presence of alkaloids, tannins, saponins, protein and flavonoids. The ethyl acetate fractions mainly contains the flavonoids and glycosides.
