    Dry and powdered leaves of Phyllantus fratenus and, Taraxacum officinale were subjected to different solvent extraction using chloroform, methanol and hexane. The extracts were examined for the phytochemical components present in them. It was observed that in Phyllantus fratenus; fats and oil, tannins, saponins, coumarins were present the chloroform extract, alkaloids, glycosides, tannins and coumarins were present in the methanol extracts and in the hexane extract, alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids and coumarins were present. In Taraxacum officinale; alkaloids, fats and oil, tannins, saponins, flavonoids, terpenoids and steroids were present in chloroform extracts, alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids and steroids were present in the methanol extract and in hexane extract, it was only alkaloids and terpenoids that were present.
