In the current study we have evaluated the hydroalcohol fruit extract of Annona muricata using phytochemical analysis by adopting method from Harborne & sofowora. Tannins, Phlobatannins, Saponins, Flavonoids, Terpenoids, Alkaloids, Carbohydrates, Anthroquinone, Polyphenols and Glycosides are the major secondary metabolites observed in the fruit extract. The quantity of different compounds are Phenols 8.88 mg/gm, Alkaloids 0.02 mg/gm, Tannins 29.65 mg/gm, Flavonoids 0.28 mg/gm and Saponins 0.37 mg/gm in our extract. Major Vitamins at detectable range are Vitamin A, C and E. The presence of Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Phosphate, Chloride and nitrates were confirmed using elemental analysis.
