Abstract : The present paper deals with the phytochemical studies of some ethno-medicinal trees of family Fabaceae. An attempt has been made to trace the chemical constituents present in three trees viz. Dalbergia sissoo Roxb. , Pongamia pinnata L. and Butea monosperma (Lam) Kuntze of family Fabaceae. For phytochemical study the extraction of plant was done by the hot maceration method (Soxhlet apparatus) with ethanol used as a solvent. Chemical group test detected the presence of alkaloid, flavanoid and amino acid in all the three plants.
