Neolamarckia cadamba (Roxb.) Bosser is an important traditionally using medicinal plant. Almost all parts of plants are used for medicinal purposes against numerous diseases. In this present study, presence of secondary metabolites was compared between bark, leaves, ripe and unripe fruits of plant using preliminary phytochemical screening using standard methods in solvents having different degree of polarity- acetone, benzene, methanol, petroleum ether and water. Comparative study indicated that polar solvents were superior in extracting secondary metabolites as compared to non- polar. This present study also suggested leaves were high on secondary metabolites followed by ripe fruits and bark whereas unripe fruits found to be on lower level on major classes of secondary metabolites.

Key words:    Phytochemicals, Neolamarckia cadamba, Secondary metabolites, polar solvents, Antioxidants
