The study aimed to analyze the phytochemical and pharmacological activities of the leaf extracts of E. crassipes. The hydroethanolic extract fractionated with different solvents (Hexane, Chloroform, ethyl acetate, n-Butanol and aqueous) was used for the analysis. The extracts were analyzed qualitatively for the presence of several phytochemical components. The plant powder was put through a series of different chemicals, and fluorescence emitted was analyzed. The fluorescence was analyzed in daylight and in ultraviolet-light (254nm, and 365nm). The fluorescence examination revealed that the plant powder fluoresces in various colours of dark green, brown, yellow in visible light, and varied shades of green, grey, reddish brown, and brown in UV light. The moisture content (25.1±1.38), and total ash value (16.18±1.39)was observed. The hydroethanolic extracting value was determined to be higher than hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, n-butanol, and aqueous. The findings of this study reveal that leaves contain a variety of phytoconstituents that can be employed as a natural source of antioxidants and for the creation of plant-based medications.
