Flowers of TecomastansLinn popularly known as "yellow bell flowers" contain flavonoids. Flavonoids has been established to have antidepressant activity of the possible phytochemical components from the ethanolic extracts of Tecomastans(flowers) .Among the phytochemical screening of these two plant extracts showed that the plant was rich in alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, saponins and quinones. This study was extended by analyzing the potent bioactive compounds in the ethanolic extract of Tecomastans(flowers) using GC-MS. The analysis revealed that Tecomastans(flowers) extracts 25 compounds were identified in the flowers ethanol extract. Medicinal potential of these compounds needs further research on microbial aspects to develop safe drug.
