North-eastern India is known for its rich biodiversity. Phytochemical are non-nutritive, chemical compounds occurs naturally on plants during metabolic processes and they have diverse proactive properties or disease preventive properties. Plants are known to produce these chemicals to protect them. While recent research demonstrates that they can also play an important role in protecting humans against diseases. Even some of these plants are in use as traditional medicine for centuries now. Most phytochemical like flavonoid, carotenoids and polyphones have antimicrobial activity and serve as a source of antimicrobial agents against pathogens. The current study was focused on the plant species like Clitoria ternatea L. to investigate type of phytochemicals present in it and its antimicrobial activity on disease causing microbs like Salmonella typhi and S. aureus In the present study, the phytochemical screening for leaves of clitoria ternata showed the presence of active component like saponins, tannins, flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosides, amino acid, antraquanine, phenols, alkaloids, proteins and steroids. The control value of ZOI is 9 mm and 3 mm with respect to S. aureus and S. typhi. The zone of inhibition of all plant extract shows more antimicrobial activity in Hexane as compared to other plant extract at streptomycin disk ranges between 10-12 mm.
