The present study was carried out to characterize the bioactive constituents present in the ethanolic extracts of Ichnocarpus frutescens using UV and FTIR spectroscopy. Qualitative phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of saponins, phenols, terpenoids, anthraquinones, quinones, alkaloids, flavonoids, carbohydrates, glycosides and absence of fixed oil, coumarins, tannins, proteins and amino acids. The UV-VIS profile of Ichnocarpus frutescens plant extract was taken at the wavelength ranging from 190 nm to 1100 nm which showed the peaks at 239.00 nm and 276.00 nm with the absorption values 3.961 and 1.111 respectively. The FTIR analysis confirmed the presence of the functional groups of nitriles, alkanes, ketones, phenols, alkyl halides and aliphatic amines.
