The present study was carried out to evaluate various therapeutic phytochemicals in different organic(ethanol, chloroform, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methanol) and aqueous extracts of leaves and fruits (dried fruit rind) of Aegle marmelos(L.) Correa.and Punica granatumL. The different parts of these two plants are extensively used in Indian traditional systems of medicine to cure chronic diarrhoea, dysentery, inflammations, indigestion and acute bronchitis. Qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analyses of these plant parts have revealed the possession of active phytochemical constituents such as alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, flavonoids, indoles, phenols, saponins, steroids, tannins and terpenoids which have tremendous therapeutic and pharmaceutical potential.
