The present study deals with the phytochemical screening and thin-layer chromatographic studies of Litsea glutinosa bark extract belonging to family Lauraceae. Phytochemical screening determination by some chemical tests and thin layer chromatographic study was carried out by using various solvent system of varying polarity.Phytochemical screening reflects the presence of alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, diterpenes, phenols, amino acids, carbohydrate, proteins and saponins hydroalcoholic extracts. Thin layer chromatographic studies of theLitsea glutinosa bark extracts constituted different colored phytochemical compounds with different Rf values. The result obtained in present study indicatedLitsea glutinosa bark as a rich source of natural antioxidants and provides evidence that solvent extract ofLitsea glutinosa bark contains medicinally important bioactive compounds and this justifies the use of plant species as traditional medicine for treatment of various diseases.
