The current work has been carried out for the screening of the phytochemicals and for estimating total phenolic and flavonoid content in Jatropha gossypiifolia (L.). The plant is a native from Central and South America and is a member of the family Euphorbiaceae. It is a well-known ornamental and medicinal plant. Methanolic extracts of the leaves, flowers and fruits were selected for the study. The preliminary screening was done for alkaloids, tannins, terpenoids, glycosides, steroids, saponins, phenols and flavonoids. The total phenolic content (TPC) was determined by Folin-Ciocalteau method and the total flavonoid content (TFC) was determined by Aluminium chloride calorimetric method.
