Dr. Manmohan S. Bhaisare*
The present investigation revealed that is to the aim of Phytochemical analysis of Ipomoea batatas a sweet potato (L.) Family; Convolvulaceae. The major bioactive constituent present in plant extract. These different extracts of Rhizome were analyzed by modern scientific procedure given by, Harborn 1998, Kokate 1994, Abulude 2007. The result in ether extract revealed the presence of Triterpenoids, Steriods and Resins. Triterpenoids, Steriods, Flavonoids and Resins in Chloroform extract. Triterpenoids, Steriods, Alkaloids, Flavonoids, Carbohydrates, Resins, Proteins in Methonolic extract. The water extract showed the presence of Carbohydrates, Proteins and Saponins. Further research of this plant part is carried for the characterization of various bioactive substance.
