The present study was designed to analyze the various phytoconstituents present in different extracts of seeds of Calotropis gigantea. Extracts of seeds of C. gigantea were prepared in different solvents viz. methanol, chloroform, petroleum ether, di-ethyl ether and water. The screening was performed for alkaloids, anthraquinones, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, and glycosides. The color intensity or the precipitate formation was used as analytical responses to these tests. The phytochemical tests revealed the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, tannins, saponins, carbohydrates, fixed oils and fats.
