In recent years, fungal endophytes from diverse host species have been widely studied for valuable compounds (enzymes, antimicrobial compounds). Fungal endophyte can act as the source of several secondary metabolites that can be used in medicine. In this study, we explored fungal endophytes associated with the medicinal plant Boerhaavia diffusa to determine the Phytochemicals and antioxidant properties. Solvent extraction was performed to obtain the crude from the fungus isolated from B.diffusa. DPPH assay was performed to determine the antioxidant property. Phytochemical characterization determined the phytochemical groups in the crude extract. GC-MS and FTIR were also performed for the extracts. FT IR analysis of the crude extract revealed the presence of chemical groups.
