Artocarpusaltilis(Parkinson) Fosbergcommonly known as breadfruit belonging to Moraceae family is a monoecious tree widely grown in the hot, moist regions throughout southeast Asia, South India and most Pacific Ocean islands.Breadfruit has a wide range of application in traditional medicine andis primarily used as a food source. Artocarpus extracts and metabolites from leaves, stem, fruit, and bark contain numerous beneficial biologically active compounds and these compounds are used for various biological activities including antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antitubercularetc.In the present study five different cold percolation extracts of Artocarpusaltilisunripe fruit viz: aqueous, methanol, ethyl acetate, hexane, and acetone were screened individually to test the presence of various phytochemicals using standard procedures.Methanol extract showed the presence of nineteen phytochemical constituents followed by water, acetone, hexane and ethyl acetate.
