Punica granatum L belonging to the family Lythraceae is described as an ingredient in remedies and is a widely used plant having medicinal properties. Having served as a symbolic fruit since ancient times, pomegranate (Punica granatum L) gained considerable recognition as a functional food in the modern era. Present study reports the phytochemical properties which have been carried out on the peel extract using ethyl acetate. The phytochemical analysis shows the presence of phenols, flavonoids, quinones, saponins, cardinolites, steroids, tanins and terpenoids in various extracts. Thin layer chromatography (TLC) has been carried out on the extract of pomegranate to separate phenols and flavonoid compounds in the pomegranate extract, analzed by FTIR and asses its total phenols and flavonoid content which have antioxidant activity.
