The selected plant for the study Enicostemma axillare is a perennial herb known for its medicinal property from the earlier literature. Although many works have attributed to screen the medicinal property of this plant, but comparative screening of the active ingredients present in the whole plant and parts of the plant remain unexplored. The chemical constituents of the selected whole plant and parts of the plant (leaf, stem, roots and flower) have been screened using solvents like chloroform, hexane, acetone and water. The results are quite interesting to note that maximum amount of glycoside is present in leaf and root, whereas reducing sugar is considerably high in leaf, stem and flower. Regarding steroids, it is found quite high in leaf and flower. Apart from steroids, flower shows significantly high level of terpenoids. When we compare the above results it is quite interesting to note that flavonoids, alkaloids and saponins are comparatively less in whole plant. It is evident from the results that each part of the plant show high concentration of specific ingredient, such study will help us to identify the high yield of required chemical constituents during the drug preparation instead of screening the whole plant.
