Abstract: 

Amorphophallus campanulatus (Roxb.) is an important tuberous plant with medicinal potential belongs to Family Araceae, largely cultivated throughout the plains of India. The A. campanulatus (Roxb.) contains phytochemicals such as flavonoids, alkaloids, steroids, phenol and tannins. The Wrightia tinctoria R.Br native to India and have reported to contains presence of glycoflavones, iso-orientin, phenolic acid and also various compounds like lupeol, stigmasterol and competosterol. The present work intends concentrated to determination of flavonoids present in corm of A. campanulatus (Roxb.) and fruit of Wrightia tinctoria R.Br. and the results indicated that, methanol corm extract of A. campanulatus (Roxb.) and fruit extract of Wrightia tinctoria R.Br have a presence of quantitative amount of flavonoids that are 90 mg/g, 88 mg/g of Rutin equivalent respectively while, petroleum ether extracts showed poor amount of flavoinds.
