The present work phytoconstituents of the seed powder of Sterculia foetidaL. extracted with 98% methanol. The extracted phytochemical compound subjected to qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, fluorescence analysis and GC-MS analysis. The results of qualitative phytochemical screening confirm that the presence of tannins, phenols, steroids, cardiac glycoside and coumarin. The significant amount of carbohydrate, protein, lipid, tannin and total phenol estimated through quantitative analysis of phytochemicals. The seed powder with the picric acid exhibited fluorescent yellow during fluorescence analysis undertaken with short ultra violet light at 254 nm. There are 13 bioactive compounds were identified through GC-MS analysis of seed powder of S. foetida L. These various bioactive compounds possess a wide range of activities such as disease control, pest control and microbicidal effect.
