Herbs possess several phytochemicals and defence mechanisms to safeguard us against numerous illnesses. The present research study was performed to examine the presence of secondary metabolites and establish HPTLC fingerprinting of Mimusops elengi Linn. The Physiochemical and Phytochemical screening was analysed for various extracts by using standard procedures, and analysis of HPTLC fingerprinting was achieved for the identification of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, saponin and steroids in the ethanolic extract of Mimusops elengi Linn. Leaves (EMEL). The phytochemical screening confirms the existence of secondary metabolites in different plant extracts of Mimusops elengi Linn. The study exposed the existence of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, saponin and steroids in the EMEL. Based on the study, it is decided that Mimusops elengi Linn. leaves have phytochemicals like alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, saponin and steroids.
