Comparative studies on the phytochemicals of leaf, stem and root of Mimosa pigra L. were carried out using standard techniques. All statistical analysis was carried out at 5% level of significance using analysis of variance. The phytochemical composition of M. Pigra varies with part of the plant. Flavonoid was only present in the root and cardiac glycoside was absent in the leaf of M. Pigra. The phytochemical composition of the stem is more than any other part of the plant.
