Totally ten components (i.e) alkaloids, terpenoids, saponin, flavonoid, tannin, glycosides, phenol, steroids, reducing sugar and carbohydrates were tested with different solvent extract. The phytochemical tests result indicates that presence of alkaloid, terpenoids, flavonoids, tannin, phenols, steroid and carbohydrate in ethanol extract and absence of saponins, Glycosides and reducing sugar. In acetone extract indicates that terpenoid, tannins and steroid presence and absence of alkaloids, saponins, flavonoid, glycosides, phenols, reducing sugar and carbohydrate. In Aqueous extract, saponins, glycosides, steroids and reducing sugars were absent and rest of the components present.



Eichhornia crassipes, Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Terpenoids, Tannins.
